A very easy dessert to make, also ideal as a healthy snack for the little ones. Raisins and honey are the sweeteners of this elegant recipe in its simplicity.
As a dessert, at the end of a meal, we suggest to match cups with Vino Privilegio 2017  by Feudi di San Gregorio winery, Irpinia Fiano Passito DOC. On the olfactory examination highlight intense notes of withered yellow flowers including dandelion and chamomile, fragrant notes of apricot jam and citrus jam with hints of dried fruit, reminiscent of almond and hazelnut, notes sweet, but not cloying and mineral finishes that recall the scents of the coast with brackish suggestions.
