350g frozen cranberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
Zest of one orange

Method

Preheat oven to 180˚C.

In a saucepan combine the frozen cranberries, sugar, orange zest and water. Bring to a boil and stir occasionally until all the sugar has dissolved. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for another 15 min or until the sauce has thickened and sticks to the back of a spoon.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Place a rack on a baking sheet and spread out the mushrooms. Season the cavity with salt and pepper. Spoon a little cranberry sauce into each mushrooms. Cut small chunks of brie and place on top of the sauce. Bake for 5-10 min or until mushrooms are cooked and cheese has melted.

Once cooked scatter each mushrooms bite with fresh dill and serve straight away.

Cranberry & Brie Mushroom Bites – pair this recipe with Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut MCC.

This wine’s creamy mousse and heady aromas play perfectly with these savoury and sweet mouthfuls. The wine’s nuttiness merges seamlessly with the brie cheese’s own nutty flavour, while its acidity and rich texture bridge the gap between the tart cranberry sauce and the rich and creamy melted brie. This is an elegant Cap Classique for an elegant canapé.
