  • 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


  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.
