    Blueberry, pecan, goat’s cheese & smoked pancetta bites

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 2 as a generous starter or 4 as a snack or canapé

    Ingredients

    Olive oil, for frying
    77g pack smoked diced pancetta
    20g pecans
    50g blueberries, halved
    ½ tsp balsamic vinegar
    60g British soft goat’s cheese
    10 rosemary sourdough crackers
    About 20 chives, finely chopped

    Method

    1. Warm a drizzle of olive oil in a small, nonstick frying pan over a high heat. Once hot, add the pancetta and fry for 2 minutes, or until golden.

    2. Reduce the heat, then add the pecans to the pan, breaking them up as you drop them in. Add the blueberries along with some seasoning. Toss to combine.

    3. Add the balsamic vinegar and let everything bubble together for 2-3 minutes until thick, almost sticky, rich and dark. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.

    4. Spread the goat’s cheese onto the crackers, then spoon over the sticky pancetta blueberries. Scatter over the chives and serve at once.
