Here’s to my MESSY kitchen at the end of the day!

And a NEW yummy appetizer recipe that I promised I’d share today.

These little apricot bites are so tasty, and the ingredients are easy to keep on hand for last-minute company. I forgot to add the fresh rosemary to the photos, but fresh herbs really add to any appetizer, depending on what flavors you have going on. Rosemary and honey is always a hit!

I get asked a lot the best places to stock up on appetizer ingredients. Good question, and here are a few of my answers:

What kind of bacon do I keep on hand?

I purchase the fully cooked bacon slices from Costco. You can freeze what you don’t use!

Where to buy the dried fruit?
I like Trader Joe’s dried apricots the best, and then next I shop Grocery Outlet for a bargain. You want to make sure the fruit is soft and fresh.

What can you substitute for the apricots?
There are quite a few ingredients that would be a delicious replacement, such as pineapple chunks, chicken pieces, water chestnuts, figs, shrimp or dates.

We always keep an assortment of nuts on hand, but I usually buy in bulk from Costco. I think it’s the best deal around. But for more specialized, again, Trader Joe’s, Harry & David, or Grocery Outlet.

Everyone has honey, right? This was home-raised from my friend, Barb, but Amy has supplied us with several jars, too. There’s nothing like home-raised honey!

    Just love it. So fresh and yummy. Can’t wait to eat. Truly delicious.

    Nicely explained, I actually made bacon wrapped apricots with honey rosemary today, it is a universal fact that food cooked in microwave oven tastes delicious. Microwave oven usually saves time in cooking and does retain the nutritive value of food. It is guaranteed method of fast cooking.

    This sounds awesome, I definitely want to try it!

    I love using apricots in a sweet and savory recipe. These look amazing, and between the apricots and cashews, you have used two of my favorite things!

    Such a perfect party treat!
