Crushed Goat's Cheese With Pepper and Black Cherry Jam

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by lindseylcw

I know this sounds like an odd mix but it is really good either on its own as an appetiser or with chargrilled veggies hot from the grill. Recipe comes from the south of France via Paul Gayler. Please buy the best jam you can afford.

This was excellent; another way to enjoy the tang of goat cheese! I reduced the recipe by 2/3's, using 4 oz. of goat cheese crumbles. I used Polaner black cherry all-fruit spread. This goes together rather quickly, with ingredients I normally have on hand. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe; I'll be making it for my friends soon! Made for ZWT 5.
