  • 20 dried black figs, stems removed, cut in half
  • 6 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • ½ cup honey (or other sweetener such as maple syrup)
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon (sounds like a lot, because it is, and it’s awesome)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt


  • Place all ingredients in the slow cooker. Mix well.
  • Put the slow cooker at low and cook for 6-8 hours until apples are completely soft and almost mushy.
  • Place ingredients (I did mine in two batches) in food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Eat with anything. A spoon, on some banana bread, on a banana. Possibilities are endless.
  • Store in refrigerator in a jar. Because jars are cute.
