  • 50g whole almonds, toasted
  • 250g dried figs, hard stalk removed, chopped
  • 50g dried apricots, halved
  • 50g walnuts, halved
  • ½ tbsp brandy
  • ½ tbsp clear honey
  • pinch ground cloves


  1. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until most are finely chopped. Remove and transfer to a bowl. Whizz the figs until they form a sticky paste, then add this to the almonds with the remaining ingredients. Mix well, then shape into a sausage and allow to dry, uncovered, in the fridge or a cool, dry place for a week.

  2. Wrap and tie in baking parchment if giving away, then slice and serve alongside your favourite cheeses. Will keep in a cool place for up to 2 months.
