Baked Camembert in a Box with Chilli Yellow Pepper Jelly

Serves 2
15 minutes

What you'll need

1 whole Camembert in a box (250g)
Sea salt flakes

Steps to take

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 220C/450F/Gas mark 7

Step 2 - Take the Camemebert cheese out of the box and unwrap it; replace the cheese back into the box. Prick the the top of the cheese and sprinkle with sea salt flakes, before replacing the lid.

Step 3- Place the box on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is molton inside, with the top browned a little. 

Step 4 - Take the box out of the oven and place it on a serving plate, take the lid off and cut a cross into the top of the cheese with a sharp knife, before spooning 4 tablespoons of the Chilli Yellow Pepper Jelly into the centre of the cut cheese. 

Step 5 - Serve whilst still hot with breadsticks and crusty bread, such as baguette or ciabatta.

NB. You must only use Camembert cheese that is in a wooden box with a wooden lid.
