Hey guys. I am trying to find a black licorice recipe that I can make. I'm trying to make it bulletproof as possible, but most gluten free licorice recipes have a cubic crapton of sugar and corn syrup in them. While that's still better than the crap they put in them at the store "They are typically made of; Brown sugar syrup, wheat flour, corn syrup, starch, licorice extract, salt, artificial and natural flavors, fractionated coconut oil, beeswax coating, and carnauba wax." Aghh I'm stuck in this font now!
Anyways, this website ---http://nouveauraw.com/raw-recipies/specialty-sweet-treats/licorice-date-wheels/--- (haha got out of it!) has a basic recipe which is supposed to taste exactly like black licorice without all that other crap. Heres what it uses:
- 3 cups Mejol dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 Tbsp ground fennel seeds
I know the dates are at best on the yellow spot of the scale, but I have no idea about the fennel seeds. Neither a search on the forums or the blog had anything to say about them. N E body know how much these are gonna mess me up?
Also I have no idea what a dehydrator tray is. Would baking them instead work?
