I came across a version of this many years ago in a gourmet traveller magazine. You can use any fruit you like try dried figs too, or you may prefer english breakfast or earl grey tea.

It may seem like a weird combo but trust me & try it. Let's face it everything with cheese is just delicious!! & it will be a great talking point when you serve it up to guests!!
