A jar of honeyed fruits and nuts makes a lovely and unique food gift during the holidays, or anytime.  And make sure to keep at least one jar for yourself…your morning oatmeal, yogurt, waffles or pancakes will never be the same. And, this honeyed fruits and nuts recipe could not be any easier!

But truthfully, I’m a little hesitant to put the label of ‘recipe’ on this…treat.

It’s almost like a recipe for a bowl of cereal…you know what I mean?

Nevertheless, label it a ‘recipe’ I will.

But what I am not hesitant about, not in the least, is that you will LOVE a dollop of honeyed fruits and nuts over any number of things. And, I’m equally certain that you will love gifting jars of this treat over the holidays.  It’s a nice variation from typical food gifts, not that I am knocking typical food gifts…(Heather, if you are reading this…I am counting on my typical gift of Rosemary Nuts)

You can customize this Honeyed Fruits and Nuts Recipe any number of ways.  You could go straight Honeyed Fruits or Honeyed Nuts.  I’ve sliced my figs in half, but you could also add more diced figs.  Prefer almonds over walnuts…have at it.

I also added a sprig of rosemary to my honeyed fruits and nuts recipe because, well…rosemary.  If you do add an herb, make sure it is well covered with honey.  Honey acts as a natural preservative.Honeyed Fruits and Nuts over yogurt

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots diced
  • 4 whole Figs cut in half
  • 1/8 cup pistachios
  • 1/8 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/8 cup sesame seeds
  • a couple sprigs of rosemary optional

Instructions

  1. Put a small amount of honey in the bottom of your jar

  2. Arrange the figs, bottom side down and cut side out, along the bottom of the jar, using the honey to 'glue' the figs to the side of the jar.

  3. Fill the space behind the figs with your choice of fruits or nuts.  I like the contrast that the pistachios give.

  4. Add a little more honey to cover the pistachios and figs

  5. Continue adding layers of fruits and nuts, topping each layer with a little honey

  6. After letting the honey settle, you may need to go back and top off your jar with a bit more honey.  You want everything to be covered

  7. If adding rosemary, put it in the middle of the jar, ensuring that it will stay covered with the honey, which acts a natural preservative.
