Merry Christmas, everyone!
Living close to The Corner Store has been wonderful. During my visits, I’ve bumped into friends, grabbed a coffee and picked up last minute ingredients for a holiday potluck. My latest visit involved searching for ingredients for a great appetizer. I was short on time and looking for inspiration. And that’s when I saw the Spicy Blackberry Preserves! I’ve used brie and crackers in the past, but this was going to take it to the next level! Try my recipe below — it would also make a great appetizer for New Year’s Eve.
Baked Camembert with Spicy Blackberry Preserves
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 15-20 mins
- MouCo Cheese Company: Camembert Cheese
- Primo: Blackberry Serrano Preserves
- 34 Degree Crackers: Natural Flavor
- 1/2 cup of chopped nuts
- 1/2 cup of raisins or dried fruit
- 1/3 cup of juice, apple or orange
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
With a sharp knife, cut off the rind around the top edge of the cheese and discard. Put the cheese into a round baking pan. Top generously with the spicy blackberry preserves.
