Fall Fruit Dip

"This really does have a lovely spicy flavor. The honey adds a little extra depth, too. Try it with apples and grapes--you could even use it as a fruit salad dressing! Prep time is chill time."

  1. Yum yum! What is not to like? Made this for a Fall themed baby shower, to serve with honey crisp apple slices and red and green grapes. My guests loved it.
  2. I love this with apples and grapes. It's a perfect fall dish.
  3. This was very good. It was extremely fast and easy to make with a food processor. I didn't even have to wait for the cream cheese to soften. I cut up some apples and set it out for a house full of teenagers who thoroughly enjoyed it.
  4. This dip is WONDERFUL anytime of the year! I could eat it with a spoon! I used this not only to dip fruit in, I dipped toasted blueberry bagel pieces. MMmmmm...mmmm..Good! I didn't feel the refridgeration part was necessary for taste. I ate some right away. Then I refridgerated it overnight for the next a.m.'s breakfast where it lost some of it's consistency. The flavor was still outstanding, just soupier. A definite keeper! Thank you for posting!


I was born and raised for the most part in Georgia. Since 1997 I've lived in the beautiful mountains of western NC, where I spend way too much time at work and not nearly enough time camping! I have a partner of 15 years (Lee) and 3 kids--2 grown and 1 teenager still at home. Lee doesn't cook, but she's my cooking cheerleader, and she and my son will always at least try anything I make, no matter what. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Other favorite ways to spend my time are doing beadwork, knitting, and making homemade soap. I should also admit that I spend waaaay too much time on the internet, but the bright side of that is that it brought me to Zaar! I spend a ridiculous amount of time here, but I love every minute of it. It's also has helped cure me of my pathological cookbook buying. I used to call cookbooks with full-page glossy photos my food porn. ;-) Now, thanks to all the talented photographers here, I can get all the food porn I want! I love to read recipes, which most of my friends think is just weird. I suspect, though, that a lot of you don't think it's weird at all! I love to cook, but only when I want to. I also love to entertain and wish I had time to do more of it. I love trying new recipes. I was a vegetarian (vegan, actually) for several years, and that's when I got hooked on trying so many different cuisines. I still love vegetarian foods, but I do eat some meat, fish, and dairy/eggs now. I still try to keep it healthy and eat as little processed food as possible, but I'm not totally strict about it. Sometimes I want some good old junk food--I just try to make it home-made junk, so at least I know what's in it! My pet peeve is willful ignorance. Grrrr
