Melted Brie with Red Pepper Jelly

Whenever we have out of town visitors, I like to give them a little something tangible to remember Manitoulin Island by.

I am a huge supporter of local businesses. One of my favourites is Hawberry Farms. They have a huge selection of jams, jellies, chutneys, garlic sauces, syrups, seasonings, no-sugar spreads, and so much more. You can even order online and if you spend more than $48, you get free shipping!

We had heaps of family over for the long weekend. I decided to give them an Island gift that I absolutely love.

Red Pepper Jelly!
To me, there's nothing more delicious than warm, ooey, gooey, melted Brie on stone milled crackers. Melted Brie on crackers is the easiest go-to recipe I have when I need a delicious appetizer in a pinch!

Even Easier Melted Brie & Red Pepper Jelly Recipe

1 wheel of Brie
Red Pepper jelly
Basil leaves

1 On a microwavable plate, place wheel of Brie and microwave it for a few minutes. Do not remove rind! Each microwave varies, so I won't give an exact time. Just make sure you don't melt the Brie so much that it's already gushing out of the rind!
2 Remove from microwave, add a few spoonfuls of Red Pepper jelly.
3 Garnish with Basil leaves, slice and eat with stone milled crackers. Enjoy!
