One of my big SAD (Standard American Diet) fall vices were always caramel apples. Not candied apples, always caramel. Hilary's primal salted caramel recipe sparked this great little combo and I knew it would be perfect to share, especially around this time of the year.
First, start by making a primal salted caramel. Soak 6 big dates, pitted, in some water for a few hours. I had small dates, so I did 12 instead. I left mine too long accidentally a couple of times, and the result was still great.
After a few hours, dump most of the water out, add the dates to a food processor and give it a whirl. Now add 1 to 2 tbsp of Essential Living Foods mesquite powder to the food processor and some Real Salt (to taste). I used about a tablespoon of mesquite and a few shakes of Real Salt. Now blend until mixed well and completely pureed.
Store this stuff in a jar and use for just about anything.
I took a bit fat scoop of it and plopped it on top of a small red apple, using a spoon to spread it down the sides a bit.
Next I took some almonds, crushed them in a food processor, and sprinkled to cover my caramel. You can stick a wooden stick through it, or go at it totally primal style with just your hands.
