  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Balsamic Jalapeno Reduction

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons pickled sliced jalapeños use more for more heat or less for less heat


Balsamic Jalapeño Pomegranate Brie Cheese

  • Place the round of Brie Cheese on a microwave safe serving dish.
  • Microwave the round of Brie Cheese for about 1 minute, just until it is softened.
  • Remove from the microwave.
  • Top with the the Balsamic Jalapeño Reduction, pomegranate seeds and chopped pecans.
  • Serve warm.

Balsamic Jalapeno Reduction

  • In a small saucepan over medium high heat, pour in the balsamic vinegar, honey and sliced pickled jalapeños. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes or until the mixture has reduced by about half.


Start with fewer jalapeños in the Balsamic Jalapeño Reduction. See how spicy it is, and then if you want it to be spicier, then add more sliced pickled jalapeños. If you like it even spicier, then use real jalapeños instead of pickled jalapeños for even more heat.
