Stuffed Dates
makes 12 dates ~ $.22 each
1/2 cup cashews ($.50)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 dates ($2.00)
candied pecans
a small, bullet type blender, process the cashews, water, agave, and
salt until smooth and the constancy of thick cream. Refrigerate for
about an hour to let it firm. 
Once firm, split each date and add a dollop of cashew cream to the center. Top with a candied pecan.
Candied pecans are simple to
make. Just coat pecans with a generous amount of agave, with a pinch of
salt and a pinch of cayenne. Then spread them out on a dehydrator sheet
and dehydrate overnight. The agave will be liquid when they’re warm,
but will harden up quite a bit as they cool.
