Ingredients Directions Nutrition
4 servings

Sour Cherry Marmalade

2 pounds dried sour cherries

1 (750 ml) bottle Manischewitz cherry wine

½ cup red wine vinegar


8 ounces shelled pistachios (1 ¾ cups)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 ½ teaspoons sugar

1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

Grilled Cheese

12 ounces Camembert cheese, rind removed

8 slices challah bread

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, for finishing

1. Make the Marmalade: In a heavy saucepan, combine all of the ingredients, bring to a simmer over high heat, and cook until the liquid is reduced by two-thirds, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor, let cool slightly, then pulse until a coarse puree forms. Let cool completely. 

2. Prepare the Pistachios: Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a bowl, toss the pistachios with the oil, sugar and salt, coating evenly. Spread the nuts on a sheet pan and toast in the oven until fragrant and lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, let cool, and coarsely chop. 

3. Divide the Camembert into four equal portions and shape each portion into a patty. Line up half of the bread slices on a work surface. Spread ¼ cup of the marmalade on each slice, then top with 1 cheese patty and sprinkle liberally with the pistachios. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices. 

4. Line a large platter with paper towels. In a skillet over high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Turn down the heat to low, add 1 sandwich, and cook, turning once, until browned and crisp and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to the prepared platter to blot the excess grease. Repeat with the remaining butter and sandwiches.
