Quick and Tasty Holiday Hors d’oeuvres

Triple Cream Brie with Earth & Vine Spicy Apple Garlic Jam

Triple Cream Brie

Recommended serving preparation: Slice 1 Granny Smith Apple in half; lay one half flat onto the cutting board; save the other half for later. Use a sharp knife to cut away thin slices (about 1/8-inch thick), then arrange the slices in even rows on a flat serving platter. Top each apple slice with about a 2-teaspoon sized portion of cheese. Spoon about half a teaspoon of Earth & Vine Spicy Apple Garlic Jam over the cheese. Assemble these no more than half an hour before serving, as apples will eventually brown. Prepare as needed throughout the evening if serving a large party.

Also try our Cypress Grove Chevre with Earth & Vine Red Bell Pepper and Ancho Chile Jam and Blue Cheese with Earth & Vine Peach Chipotle Jam.

Health Notes from Dr. Liz

Going Nuts

It’s time to go nuts – eating them that is. Studies show that making nuts – almonds, pecans, walnuts and the like – a regular part of your daily fare offers an array of health benefits. According to research studies eating a one-ounce serving of nuts daily (or at least 4 to 5 days a week) may:

  • lower total circulating cholesterol levels and in particular, the bad carrier LDL which damages artery walls
  • lower risk for heart disease by also reducing levels of fat in the blood
  • aid in controlling blood sugar levels in people with diabetes
  • reduce hunger levels and assist in weight control

Researchers suggest that nuts’ health benefits come from the fact they contain mostly liquid or heart-healthy fats. Nuts like almonds are also rich in vitamin E and other antioxidants that may protect both your heart and brain from aging.

You can easily add nuts to your diet by tossing a small handful over your whole grain cereal, atop yogurt, as a garnish on side dishes such as steamed veggies or toast nuts slightly and toss into a mixed green salad. But since nuts average about 170 calories per one-ounce serving, you will need to balance these extra calories by watching portion sizes of other foods.
