The Pie Saga finally concluded: Raw Fruit Pie

Things finally seem to be falling into place with the internet,
food, the coming Holiday, and our health. Thank goodness.

I promised it so here it is... my first Raw Pie.
No kidding around, I'll voice my comments throughout the
recipe. This is across the board refreshing and guilt-free!!

Raw Apple-Pear Pie

Crust















2 cups almonds, soaked overnight
2 tablespoons mildly flavoured oil
1/4 tsp salt

Blend all together- better yet throw it in a food processor.
Unfortunately, I do not have one. But process it until the almonds
have the consistency of sand. From now on this is how I am going
Make sure to scrape down the sides as you go so it has an even
consistency. Press into
a pie pan evenly and set aside.















Filling

1 gala or fuji apple
2 ripe pears
1 tsp lemon juice to prevent browning
1/4 cup golden raisins, chopped
6-8 dried apricots, chopped
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice

For easier blending , chop the apple and pears and blend
with lemon juice to obtain a chunky apple sauce texture.















Mix in dried fruit and spices.
Pour into prepared crust and serve! Easy as pie.















My only complaint? A little wetter than baked pies.
But the filling is amazingly just like a cooled cooked apple pie!
Sooo tasty.
