Recommended serving preparation: Slice 1 Granny Smith Apple in half; lay one half flat onto the cutting board; save the other half for later. Use a sharp knife to cut away thin slices (about 1/8-inch thick), then arrange the slices in even rows on a flat serving platter. Top each apple slice with about a 2-teaspoon sized portion of cheese. Spoon about half a teaspoon of Earth & Vine Spicy Apple Garlic Jam over the cheese. Assemble these no more than half an hour before serving, as apples will eventually brown. Prepare as needed throughout the evening if serving a large party.

But since nuts average about 170 calories per one-ounce serving, you will need to balance these extra calories by watching portion sizes of other foods.
