Skinned one green apple and sliced them up to make layers inside the mould.
Blend in a mixer a few nuts and figs until chunky with some honey to get them to stick together. On a plate, placed the mould and added nutty mix into the form and pressed down, to create a firm base of the mould.
Puree one apple until smooth and warm it up on low heat for a minute to get it to homogenise, add a pinch of salt to get juice and fructose to sweeten naturally and set aside.
Stack the first layer of sliced apple on the top of the nutty base and spread a little apple puree over it, then another layer of sliced apple and another layer of puree until reaching the top of the mould.
