Authentic Suburban Gourmet: Apricots and Stilton Bites

Read Time:1 Minute, 23 Second
Several weeks ago I attended a performance for Broadway Under the Stars from the Transcendence Theatre Company in Sonoma.  My company sponsored half of the performance
while Moss Adams took care of the other half. 
It was a great way to end an all day meeting in Sonoma.  The weather was simply perfect for an evening
of great wine, food and entertainment. What a great way to spend a Thursday
evening.

There were passed appetizers and free flowing wine.  I was particularly drawn to one of the passed
appetizers and thought I would recreate it for my Friday Night Bites
series.  It was such a simple combination
of flavors but just shouted summer. 
Since apricots are in their prime now, just a drizzle of honey, stilton
blue cheese, fresh thyme and a sprinkle of Maldon salt capped off this one bite
wonder.

I used a Turkish honey that I found at Trader Joes and it
has some wonderful undertones of floral notes and set off the ripe apricot
perfectly.  You could also sprinkle with
some chopped toasted pecans for a bit of crunch as an additional element to
this appetizer. 

Personally I would suggest pairing this appetizer with
either a sparkling wine or a light white wine or your favorite French Rose.

Apricots and Stilton Bites

Makes 16

4 Ripe Apricots

Honey

Stilton Cheese

Fresh Thyme Leaves

Maldon Salt

Cut the apricots into quarters and discard the seeds. Place
onto your favorite platter.  Place a
small piece of stilton on top of each apricot and drizzle with honey.  Place a small sprig of thyme leaf on each
apricot and a light dusting of Maldon salt. Serve immediately.
