Burrata with Blueberry Chutney and Mint

By kikilu — May 21, 2013

Everytime I come home from Califorinia, I'm inspired to create flavors fresh from the garden with an unexpected twist. And I love this recipe for taking a little risk and getting creative. This dish is perfect for a dinner party or luncheon because everything is done ahead and assembled just before guests arrive. The chutney can be adjusted to tone down the vinegar. Sometimes I use less or add a little water. The chutney also fantastic with grilled meats, especially pork tenderloin. 

Lastly, if you can't find burrata, use fresh ricotta. This also makes a beautiful presentation as a plated course. Prepare the bruschetta for guests and serve on a long tray.

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the shallot and sauté until soft.
  2. Add the blueberries, balsamic, lemon juice, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and salt and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to a medium-low and simmer, stir occasionally, until thickened, about 45 minutes. Let cool and transfer to glass jar.
  4. To serve: drain the burrata from the water and place on a plate or small wooden cutting board. Cut the burrata down the middle leaving it intact at the bottom.
