The holidays are among us and that means a lot of entertaining going on; the perfect time to be with family and friends. I love to entertain and prepare lots of different dishes and bake tons of desserts. This year I got to try the new Orchard Choice California Fig Spreads. I must say, these are quite unique! The fig flavor is delicious, they're not too sweet and they go well with anything. I was actually eating mine straight out of the jar! They are made with California figs, and they come in four different flavors.
- California Orange - Summer's best figs laced with a tangy twist of
orange create a fruit spread ripe for pairing with cheeses, topping
toasts, and brightening desserts.
- Organic Mission Fig - Sweet, earthy and bursting with fig flavor,
our simple blend of summer's best organic Mission figs pairs well with
cheese, perks up yogurt, and tops toast in style.
- Balsamic Pepper - It's love at first bite when sweet figs join sassy balsamic vinegar and spicy black pepper. Brighten up cheese trays, garnish grilled meats...the possibilities are endless!
I tried these with cheese, on a sandwich, on crackers...actually a lot of things, however the one that stood out the most is the Baked Brie. I couldn't decide which spread to put on top so I actually put all four! The spreads didn't spread together, but they all paired perfectly with the warm brie.
- Port Wine - Imagine sweet, luscious, figs drenched in port and you have the makings of our elegant fruit spread. From appetizers to desserts, enjoy the possibilities.
Ingredients are as follows:
1 8 ounce round of brie
1 8 ounce package of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 Tbsp. of each fig spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a cookie sheet.
Unroll the crescent rolls and press all the triangles, but two into a rectangle.
Place the round of brie in the center.
Place a tablespoon of each flavor of fig spread onto the brie.
Wrap the dough up around the brie and spreads.
Take one of the remaining triangles and place on any opened area. Take the last triangle and make a little design on top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes; until golden brown.
Serve warm and enjoy!
Doesn't that look delicious? How would you like to try the spreads and a bag of sun-dried figs yourself?
