Brie Glazed with Kiwifruit

Ingredients

  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons currants
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves, ground
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice, ground
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 California kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pecan pieces
  • 1 small wheel of brie cheese

Place the cranberries, currants, brown sugar, cloves, ginger root, allspice, mustard and water in a medium saucepan. Cook gently over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer the mixture until the cranberries swell and the liquid thickens into a jam like consistency, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. When cool, stir in the chopped kiwi and pecan pieces.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place the whole brie on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Spread with the cooled kiwi-cranberry marmalade over the top of the brie to coat the edges evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the brie round swells. Remove from the oven and gently slide the brie onto a cheese board or plate.

Serve immediately with crackers.
