Calabrian Fig Jam Crostini

Fig jam is such an amazing condiment because it goes well with virtually all cheese, and this is a really fun way to literally spice it up. Mix it with a bit of Calabrian chili paste (or your favorite hot sauce/spread) to give it a bit of a kick, and a squeeze of lemon juice brightens it up.

This would be great served on its own with a cheese board, but I really love it on these crostini. Use any soft cheese you like - even a dollop of good quality ricotta would be fantastic - but there's something about rich and creamy brie cheese that is especially delicious with it!

P.S. you can use any fig jam for this recipe, but I particularly love how Agrimontana fig jam isn't full of seeds like many can be.

  1. Mix the fig jam, Calabrian chili paste and lemon juice together in a container. Taste and add more Calabrian chili paste if desired for a spicier jam.
  2. On a slight bias, slice the baguette into 1/4-inch slices. Brush the slices with the 1/4 cup olive oil, then place on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crunchy, 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once the crostini are cool, top each with a slice of brie, and a dollop of the spicy fig jam.
