When the holidays are around the corner, it is nice to have a few easy to prepare appetizers up your sleeves for when you are heading to a party and need to bring a dish. This Cranberry Jam Crostini Appetizer is just the thing. One taste of this Cranberry Jam and everyone will be asking you for the recipe. The cranberry jam lends you that tart but yet a little sweet taste you do not even know you crave, while the brie adds the creaminess over top the crisp garlic bread. Not to mention that you can ditch the canned cranberry sauce and serve the jam with dinner on thanksgiving, or overtop chicken breasts any time of the year.
yields: 15-20 pieces
French bread, 1 loaf
Brie cheese, room temperature, 2 pieces (about 100 grams/3 oz each)
Butter, unsalted, soft, 6 tablespoons
Garlic, finely chopped, 1 teaspoon
All Purpose Seasoning, 1/4 teaspoons
Avocado oil, 2 tablespoons
Shallot, chopped small, 1-2 small (about 3 tablespoons)
Kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon
Black pepper, pinch
Cranberry juice, 2 1/2 cup
Dried cranberries, 1 1/2 cup
Red wine vinegar, 4 tablespoons
Juice of lemon, 1 each
Chef’s Notes:If the Brie has a rind on the outside either slice off or scoop out the cheese as you spread onto the crostini. Some Brie is ready to spread and has no rind. Do not serve with rind.
