- 1 1/4 cup honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
- Zest of an orange
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- 8 ounces Diamond Nuts chopped walnuts
- 10 apricots (washed, halved and pitted)
- 11 oz goat cheese
To make the orange honey-walnut syrup, whisk the honey, vanilla, orange juice, orange zest and nutmeg in a medium saucepan until combined. Bring the syrup to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the syrup reaches a boil, stir in the walnuts, and cook for 4 minutes, stirring the walnuts occasionally. Let the syrup cool slightly, then transfer it to a glass container.
To serve, top the fresh apricot halves with slices of the goat cheese, then spoon a tablespoon of the walnut syrup over each apricot half. The apricots can remain chilled for a few hours before serving.
