Deepfried Camembert

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Andrew Fison

This was a favorite of mine from a small pub outside bristol in the UK. I had some spare cheese and time one night and came up with this recipe. Serve with a semi sweet jelly like red current or an onion jam.

I'm not sure if 'red currant' is the same as cranberry, but deep fried camembert + cranberry jelly is a mouthful of joy. My best friend makes this from time to time and it's extraordinarily tasty.
