Fresh seasonal berries simmer in Very Berry Bomba to make a deep-flavoured compote for creamy warm Brie. This makes an excellent appetizer for any gathering.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
1 baguette, sliced into ¼-inch slices
3 tbsp. olive oil
¼ tsp. salt
1 round Brie cheese (8 oz.)
Summer Berry Compote:
1 cup mixed berries (such as blackberries and blueberries)
1 cup pitted black cherries (fresh or frozen)
¼ cup Girls’ Night Out Very Berry Bomba
1 tbsp. liquid honey
½ tsp. finely grated orange zest
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. cold water
In saucepan set over medium heat, combine berries, cherries, Very Berry Bomba, honey and orange zest. Bring to boil; simmer, stirring, for about 10 minutes or until berries are softened. Stir cornstarch with cold water until dissolved. Stir into berry compote and simmer for about 3 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Let cool.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Brush baguette slices with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in single layer on baking sheet; bake for about 8 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Let cool.
Place Brie on oven-safe baking platter or dish. Bake in 350°F (175°C) oven for about 10 minutes or until Brie is softened. Spoon berry compote over Brie; serve with toasted baguette slices.
Tip: If you want to save time or if fresh berries are unavailable, use a frozen berry mix, such as a 4-field berry mix or berry-cherry blend. Use berries from frozen; don’t thaw first.
