Baked Brie With Golden Raisin Compote

Recipe by KWest3

Most of the prep work for this flavorful appetizer can be done in advance. The Brie is rich enough to pair with a tart and sweet compote. To ease slicing, keep Brie chilled until ready to use.

I made the Golden Raisin compote tonight, inspired by a local restaurant that served it with braised cabbage and pork medallions as a special. I didn't have it with the brie, but made the braised cabbage and pork instead. It was very good and fairly close to what the restuarant served. My wife loved it and we both decided to drive out to bring some to our daughter who is in college 20 minutes away. She liked it too. I give it a 4 because I changed some things in the recipe. I finely chopped the raisins, used half the apples which I recommend mashing a little, cider vinegar instead of wine vinegar, and 1/2 the sugar (it was still a little on the sweet side). Next time I just use the raisins for sweetness. All in all, a great recipe though and I'm certainly going to make more!
