    Makes: about 900g


    1 tbsp olive oil
    4 tbsp tahini
    4 tbsp pomegranate molasses
    3 tbsp zaatar
    2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
    1 tsp flaked sea salt
    400g cashew nuts
    200g blanched almonds
    150g pecans
    60g sour cherries or dried cranberries
    100g dried apricots, cut into 1cm pieces


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6; line a large baking tray with baking parchment. In a large bowl, mix together the oil, tahini, pomegranate molasses, zaatar, thyme and salt until combined. Add the nuts and toss to coat.

    2. Spoon onto a large baking tray in a single layer (you may need 2 trays). Bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring halfway through, until lightly golden. Remove from the oven, stir through the cherries and apricots, then leave to cool completely. Fill either cellophane bags or small jars with the fruit and nut mix, seal tightly and label. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 month.
