Cranberry Chutney
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shallots, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • dash of red pepper flakes
  • french baguette, sliced thinly
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 oz brie cheese, softened
Fried Mustard Seeds
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp yellow mustard seeds
Cranberry Chutney
  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add the shallots and saute until golden, about 3 mins.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan and cook until the cranberries pop, about 10 mins. Remove from the heat and cool.
  3. The chutney can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay the sliced bread in an even layer on a sheet tray.

  2. Drizzle the bread with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 mins or until golden brown.
Fried Mustard Seeds
  1. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and cover immediately. Careful! The seeds will begin to pop immediately. Shake the pan a few times as they cook, and carefully check after a minute or two if they're browned. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with salt. Leave covered until they finish popping. Pour the seeds on a papertowel lined plate to drain.

To Serve
  1. Spread the brie onto the crostini. Add a dab of cranberry chutney and a sprinkle of the fried mustard seeds.
