Peach and Prosciutto Bundles

If you want to add color and interest to a table of appetizers, try this peachy fresh one which always gets an oooo and ahhh from our guests.  Sweet peaches, caramel sweet Gouda cheese, salty prosciutto and the crunch of Provence nut & spice blend make this appetizer so fresh and flavorful.  Not to mention the presentation of these fresh ingredients is a stunner – and using peaches during their peak season make these bites juicy and hard to resist.

Gouda cheese, named after the Dutch city, is one of the oldest types of cheeses made.  Depending upon the maturity of the cheese, the flavor can vary from carmel sweet to fruity tang, to butterscotch.  Gouda can be aged anywhere from 4 weeks to more than 12 months and the longer it ages, the sweeter it gets.

Here I used Provence nut & spice mix, however, adding an additional spicy note would work beautifully as well.  Also try this recipe with San Miguel, Penang, Mumbai or Cairo blends.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Slice gouda cheese into sticks, about ½ inch thick. Wash & slice peaches into thick wedges.
  2. Take a thin slice of prosciutto and wrap around both the peach slice and gouda cheese stick, twisting the prosciutto at the top when ends meet. Pierce all of these together with a toothpick to bind and hold into one piece.
  3. Arrange the peach bundles onto a serving plate. Drizzle all of the bundles with honey. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of sea salt. Sprinkle with Provence nut & spice mix and serve.
