Brie Topped with Cranberry Marmalade

Here’s a great appetizer!  It takes a wee bit of work, but is well worth it when you have guests you want to impress.

BRIE TOPPED WITH CRANBERRY MARMALADE

1 12″ wheel of brie

3 C. fresh cranberries (or 2 C. dried cranberries)

½ – ¾ C. brown sugar

1/3 C. dried currants

1/3 C. water

1/8 tsp. dry mustard

1/8 tsp. ground allspice

1/8 tsp. cardamom

1/8 tsp. cloves

1/8 tsp. ginger

Cook cranberries over medium heat until they pop. Bring to room temperature.  Take skin off top of brie, but leave ¼” around the edge. Leave all skin on the sides. Put cooled marmalade on top.  Bake @ 180°C until cheese melts, ~ 15 minutes. Serve warm with apple & pear slices & crackers.
