Dried Fig and Ginger Paste
  1. For best results, use the KitchenAid Platinum Stand Mixer KSM156. Combine water, sugar and orange blossom water. Bring to the boil and simmer until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Cool and set aside
  2. Attach the fruit and vegetable strainer attachment to stand mixer and turn to speed 6. Place a bowl under the straining attachment. Add the figs, followed by the ginger pushing them gently into the hopper with the pusher. The paste will extrude from the actual strainer cone and from the end of the strainer cone
  3. This firmer paste from the end of the cone can be placed back into the hopper to re-strain. Remove the cover from the attachment and scrape all the paste from the whole of the cone into the mixing bowl. Attach the flat beater and add the cooled orange blossom water
  4. Mix for 5 seconds to combine. Refrigerate until using. Serve a large dollop of paste with crisp almond bread and a selection of cheeses
Tips & Hints:
  • The fruit and vegetable strainer can also be used to puree softer fruits. In this recipe it produces a simple paste
  • Depending on the brand, some dried figs are very firm and dry, others are very soft and pliable. If very dry and very firm to touch, the figs will need to be poached first in a light sugar syrup
