MEGA KIWI SNACKS

Brie Glazed With Mega Kiwi

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 Mega Kiwi, peeled and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons pecan pieces

  • 1 small wheel of brie cheese

 

Instructions

 

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 Mega 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.
