I have been playing a lot of Skyrim recently. A lot. And I strongly suspect I am not alone in that. But you can’t always be at your Xbox. Sometimes you have to be at work, or having a cup of tea with a friend in the real world. Fear not! Now, you can take a little piece of Skyrim with you!
A friend pointed me at this rather excellent blog which provides everything you need to know to make a Skyrim-style sweet roll, but I thought I could do one better. Why stop at one snack when you can have two, eh? So, here follows my recipe for the “Honey Nut Treat” and it couldn’t be easier!
200g raw pistachio nuts
350g dried apricots
3 tbsp good quality honey
2 tbsp pineapple juice or lime juice
Blitz everything together in a food processor until it reaches the “sticky mess” stage then, with damp hands, roll the mixture into balls slightly smaller than golf balls. You can eat them like this, or for a more authentic finish, thread them in threes onto bamboo skewers. Either way, keep them in the fridge until you are ready to snack, or at least over night before packing them into a lunch box, so they firm up a bit.
