Apricot/Ginger Brittle - Food-Nutrition-Health Seminar Series - Dessert Powerhouses


This week we are creating a delicious whole plant candy snack which is chewy, sweet and has ginger kick! Enjoy your sweet snack knowing that it made from whole plants, it contains plenty of fiber and is full of nutritional goodness.


THIS IS THE FIRST POST FOR OUR SEMINAR ON SATURDAY 13 JULY @10:00am PST - REGISTRATIONS CLOSE ON 12 JULY AT 11:00PM PST






 





Ingredients

2.5 C Orange Juice (with the pulp)

1.5 C Goji Berries

1 C Apricot

1 C Walnut

1 Vanilla Pod (cut into small pieces)

1/2 C Chia (ground)

1/4 C Ginger Root (diced)

1 tsp Cinnamon Spice

1 tsp Vanilla Spice

1/2 tsp Ginger Spice (not shown in photo above)

1000 ml Water












Guidance

Place all the ingredients (except the chia) in your blender of choice

Cover with water to the top

Allow to soak for three hours

Blend until all chunks have disappeared











Guidance for preparing the blended sauce for dehydration

Place in a large bowl

Add the chia

Allow to sit for 15 minutes so that the chia 'gels'


You will know it is ready as the mixture will not longer 'stick' to the sides of the bowl (photo left) and moves as one (photo below) - there will be no liquid on the sides of the bowl when you move the bowl. The chia seed will hold the entire liquid mixture together and it will move as one solid piece - like a big sweet blob of tasty goodness!










Guidance for dehydrating

Place silicon dehydrating sheets on your dehydration racks

Ladle the mixture onto the silicon dehydrating sheets to the top

Spread the mixture as evenly as you can onto the silicon sheets

Dehydrate until all moisture is gone












Dehydration time will vary depending on your climate, your dehydrator's size and the temperature you choose as well as how thickly you ladle the mixture. This recipe took 45 hours at 50 degrees C to complete.



Due to the chia seed, this will be a chewy brittle and not a hard, crunchy brittle. More like a chewy candy or taffy.
