This Brie with Cranberry Balsamic Chutney is a simple and festive holiday appetizer!  The sweet and tart of the cranberries pairs perfectly with creamy Brie cheese. Serve with bread or crackers.


  • 2 cups of fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 3 tsp balsamic vinegar (white or red)


  1. To a saucepan add the fresh cranberries, sugar, water and orange juice.
  2. Simmer the mixture over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries start to soften and the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the fresh rosemary and balsamic vinegar.
  4. Turn up the heat to low-medium and continue to cook until the cranberries burst and the sauce is the consistency that you like. This takes about 10 minutes or so.
  5. Once the mixture has thickened, remove the rosemary sprig.
  6. Cool the sauce to room temperature before serving.
  7. Once it has cooled, pile it on to a Brie wheel, and serve with slices of fresh baguette or crackers!
