The Art of Cheese — Cran-Apple Chutney Crisps with Aged Havarti
Recipe Type: Appetizer
Serves: 8-10 servings
Sweet and spicy chutney with aromatic ingredients like star anise, cardamom, and cinnamon, to compliment to the rich and creamy Aged Havarti cheese.
  • 1 small apple, cored and cubed
  • ½ cup fresh cranberries, washed and chopped
  • 1 tbsp sugar (add more if you like it sweet)
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ¼ tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 small star anise (optional, but recommended)
  • 8-10 wheat thins
  • ½ cup of crumbled aged Havarti cheese
  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a pan. Sprinkle about 2 tbsp water and cover with a lid.
  2. Let it cook through until it is soft and mushy.
  3. After removing from the pan, you may run it through a blender if you like, but just mashing with a spoon would be good enough.
  4. Crumble the cheese with your hands.
  5. Spread a generous layer of cran-apple chutney on a slice of toast or wheat thins and top it with plenty of crumbled cheese.
