Expert Tips

Instead of the apricot preserves, why not try peach or strawberry?

Dress up the fruit plate with sprigs of fresh cilantro. If you like, add some kiwifruit slices, watermelon or fresh pineapple to the platter. Serve the fruit with frilly toothpicks or cock-tail forks.

Crystallized, or candied, ginger has been cooked in a sugar syrup, then coated with coarse sugar. It adds a wonderful peppery-sweet flavor to the dip in this recipe.
