  • Cast-iron pan
  • Brie Baker


  • 1 pound California strawberries hulled & quartered
  • 1 Tbsp white sugar
  • Juice of half a fresh lemon
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 jalapeños cored & diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger peeled & grated
  • 4 cardamom pods partly cracked
  • 4 whole cloves
  • Optional: red pepper flakes
  • Wheel of Brie sized to fit your Brie Baker


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Mix strawberries in a medium-sized bowl with white sugar & lemon juice; set aside for up to 3 hours, stirring every 30 mins.
  • In a cast iron pan over medium-high heat, dissolve brown sugar & apple cider vinegar; stir with a wooden spoon.
  • Add jalapeños, red onion, ginger, cardamom, and cloves. Stir constantly for 5-6 minutes or until onions start browning.
  • Add strawberry mixture (including juice); reduce heat to medium or medium-low, depending on your burner. Add a pinch (or more!) of red pepper flakes (to add extra heat, if desired)
  • Stir frequently for 10 minutes or until mixture becomes thick enough to coat a spoon.
  • Meanwhile, scrape off the top rind only of the brie, place in Brie Baker & bake uncovered for 15-17 minutes.
  • Remove from heat & carefully remove cardamom pods and cloves.
  • Serve spicy strawberry chutney spooned over top of cooked brie with crostini.


Notes : The chutney is spicier without the Brie accompaniment. Also delicious cold with goat cheese on rosemary crackers.

Just made this – so easy. Very good even if you don’t toast the baguette. Will definitely become a familiar dish in my home.
