Almost Instant Appetizers for the Holidays

Clementine and Serrano Skewers with Honey Lime Drizzle

  • 2 TB Honey
  • 1 Lime, zested and juiced
  • ¼ tsp Ground Cardamom
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Bunch Basil, cut in strips, (chiffonade)
  • 4 oz Serrano Ham (or Prosciutto), thinly sliced
  • 4 Clementines, separated into 2-segment wedges

Step One

To make the Lime Honey Drizzle, shake the first 4 ingredients together in small jar.

Step Two

Wrap a strip of ham around each Clementine wedge and skewer with toothpick. Scatter skewers sprinkle with basil, place on a platter and drizzle with honey lime dressing.

Apricots with Goat Cheese and Pistachios

  • 1 (4 oz) Log Goat Cheese, (Chevre), softened
  • 16 – 20 Large Dried Apricots 1⁄4 Cup Chopped Roasted
  • Salted Pistachios

Spread the soft goat cheese on the apricots and sprinkle with the pistachios.

No. 2 : Kitchen SCOOP

Serrano ham is an air-dried ham from Spain, similar to Prosciutto. One of the biggest differences be- tween the two is that the Serrano is cured for much longer – 18 to 24 months compared to Prosciutto’s typ- ical curing time of 10 – 12 months. This means Serrano is more strongly flavored, and Prosciutto has a smoother lightly salted taste.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Did you know that most of the dried apricots we enjoy come from Turkey? All three ingredients in this easy appetizer celebrate the Turk- ish spin on the Mediterranean Diet – goat cheese is found in Turkey as are the crunchy pistachios!

Yes! Rosé is a great way to welcome friends and family during the holidays. This one is a blend of mostly Grenache
and Syrah grapes, a very classic combination for the wines of Provence. You’ll enjoy raspberries and stfruit, (peaches and nectarines), in the aroma with the addition of white flowers and cherries in the taste. A great value wine to celebrate with this season!
