    Directions

    01

    Line standard loaf tin with parchment paper, leaving overhang on all sides.

    02

    In food processor, pulse all ingredients until well blended and sticking together when pressed between your fingers. Transfer mixture to prepared loaf tin and very tightly pack into an even layer using the bottom of a drinking glass (a touch of water on the bottom of the glass will avoid too much sticking). Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    03

    Using overhang, remove chilled mixture from pan and transfer to cutting board; slice into 6 batons. Wrap each baton in parchment or beeswax wrap and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
