Method

  1. Heat the honey and most of the thyme leaves in a small pan until warm. Add a pinch of salt; set aside while you prepare the dates.
  2. Use a small knife to cut a slit lengthways into the side of each date. Remove the stone and replace with a blanched almond. Spread some of the goat’s cheese into the gap, then sit, cheese-side up, on a platter.
  3. Drizzle over the honey and scatter with a few more thyme leaves to serve.
