  2. Spread fresh preserves on a cheese tray or serving platter.
  3. Place your almonds in a bag or between two sheets of paper towel and crush using a blunt object, like a glass olive oil bottle.
  4. Next chop your apricots and mix together with the almonds and parsley.
  5. Roll your goat cheese in the mixture, pressing gently to coat.
  6. Set the goat cheese log atop the preserves and surround with crackers and fresh fruit.
  7. Finish it off with a hearty drizzle of honey and you're good to go!

Recipe Notes

No apricots? No problem! Try this uber easy appetizer with fig preserves instead; it's equally amazing!

I've tried this app with both honey roasted almonds and lightly salted almonds and adored them both! Feel free to use whichever you have on hand!
