Goat Cheese & Autumn Berry Spread



Goat Cheese & Autumn Berry Spread
The tangy, sweet-and-sour flavor of the Autumn Berry is a wonderful companion to creamy goat cheese in this delightful recipe. Delicious when spread on sliced baguette rounds or crackers, it also makes a wonderful dip for fresh vegetables or on sandwiches. The high amount of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, is another natural benefit of the flavorful Autumn Berry.
Ingredients:

3 Tbsp Autumn Berry Preserves
1 Tbsp shallot, finely diced
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp fresh thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
Fresh berries of choice, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

 

Mix the Autumn Berry Preserves, shallots, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in small bowl.

 

Gently stir the preserve mixture into the softened goat cheese. Do not overmix.

 

Spread on baguette rounds or use as a dip with your favorite crackers or fresh vegetables. Garnish with fresh berries or sprigs of thyme.
