Gooey Brie 
with Fig & Pear Jam

March, 2022

Does anything more need to be said after the phrase “warm brie?” Well, let’s go ahead anyway and talk about figs and pears, too! 

  • 1 firm ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
  • ¾ c. chopped dried figs
  • ½ c. water
  • 1 ½ tbsp. chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. grated nutmeg

Combine the above ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring this mixture to a boil and then turn down the heat to a simmer. Continue to cook for 25–30 minutes. Let this cool and then using an immersion blender, blend to desired consistency.

For serving:

  • fresh baguette and/or crackers
  • chopped fresh rosemary
  • toasted, chopped pecans
  • a round of brie, room temperature

Winning combination = slice of baguette + wedge of brie + spoonful of jam + a sprinkle of both fresh rosemary & chopped pecans!
