Reviews forBrie Appetizers with Bacon-Plum Jam
"I love the idea of this, but we cannot stand the taste of coffee.Any non-alcoholic) substitute suggestions for the coffee?Thanks in advance."If you're not cooking with joy, happiness and love, you're not cooking well." - Danny Kaye"
"Sweet and Salty and slightly Dense * Perfect combo for a lovely little condiment * This one does have a Holiday ring to it. And Brie is the perfect cheese on which to top this snappy little relish onto. I didn't have any dried plums so I used Dark Raisins.We found this one to be most enjoyable and easy to make. I also found the taste to be more refined the next day . Recipe can easily be halved.JanieTaste Of Home Volunteer FE."
