Farm Fresh Apricot Bites

Perfect for a quick and oh so tasty appetizer!

Serves 6 or more!

Ingredients:

6 apricots washed and halved (use more apricots for a larger crowd)

Manouri Greek fresh feta like cheese  (Any feta will work. 1 package of feta is plenty even if you increase the amount of apricots)

Honey drizzle (We used our local raw sage from Farmers’ Market)

1 bunch fresh sage leaves (How to fry: recipe follows below)

Olive oil

Method Options:

Method #1  Using fresh uncooked apricots: as seen on recipe video.

– Wash, dry, and halve apricots.

– Place halved apricots on a serving platter or wooden board.

– Crumble feta and place small amount inside the center “well” of the apricot.

– Drizzle honey over the apricots. We used a spoon for a thin stream.

– Garnish each apricot with a fried sage leaf. Recipe follows.

– Ready to serve and enjoy!

Method  #2

– Broil apricots cut side up until browned. About 2 minutes. Watch carefully.

– Take out from oven and let cool.  Best not to broil both sides, as they become too soft and don’t hold their shape.

– Add enough cheese to fill the center of the apricot.

– Drizzle with honey.

– Garnish with a fried sage leaves.  Recipe follows.

**Note the broiled ones pictured were broiled on both sides, best to only broil the cut side as they will hold their shape much better.

Frying sage leaves:

Ingredients:

1 bunch sage leaves

Olive oil

Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt (optional)

Method:

– In a medium heated skillet add 2 Tbl. or more to cover the bottom of the pan.

– Once oil is heated, add the sage leaves.

– In about a few seconds, the leaves turn color. Flip leaves over cooking another 20-30 seconds.
