300 – 250 gm hard salty cheese – ideally Cretan graviera – I have done it using a good pecorino sardo
150 gm finely chopped dried or crystallised fruit, i.e.citrus rind, or dried apricots, figs or plums. Feel free to use your instincts!
Several pieces of finely sliced ‘mostarda di fruta’ – or pickled watermelon rind (see recipes ) this is not essential but if you can be bothered it is beautiful (first pickle your watermelon !)
Fresh sprigs of thyme.
Slice the cheese into 8 – 12 fairly thin slices, it’s good if you can achieve thin triangular shaped slices.
Finely slice the dried/crystallised fruit and ‘mustarda di fruta’.
Assemble the cheese and fruit on a plate and drizzle with honey.
Finish with a sprig of fresh thyme.
