- While the cylinder is firming, combine the fruits, crystallized ginger, parsley, ground ginger, and almonds.
- Remove the cheese from its wrapping, and completely coat the log with the fruit mixture leaving no bare spots visible. Place the coated log back into refrigerator until firm. Using a sharp knife, slice into thin madallions, and serve.
