Recipe Thursday-Port-Glazed Walnuts with Gorgonzola

Posted on February 7th, 2013 | Posted in Appetizer, Recipes

I was looking for a flavorful appetizer to serve at a dinner party, that I could prep ahead of time, and I came across this; Port-Glazed Walnuts with Gorgonzola. Delicious! I was able to make the port glazed walnuts and the sauce ahead of time so all that I had to do was let the cheese come to room temperature before my guests arrived. Encourage guests to take a cracker and stack it with a small cut off chunk of gorgonzala drizzled with a litte sauce and one walnut. The perfect bite! This dish could very easily be served as a dessert too and the walnuts would be perfect on a spinach salad.

Port-Glazed Walnuts with Gorgonzola

Port Glazed Walnuts with Stilton

Yield 12 Servings

2 1/2 cups walnut halves (9 ounces)
3/4 cup sugar (991842)
3/4 cup ruby port
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper (CQP071)
1 bay leaf (CQB011)
One 1-pound wedge of Gorgonzola cheese (775809)


Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, port, pepper and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Discard the bay leaf.

Add the walnuts to the saucepan, stirring to evenly coat them. Using a slotted spoon, drain the nuts very well. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the walnuts on it in a single layer. Bake for 12 minutes, stirring once, or until the nuts are mostly dry; let cool. Separate any nuts that stick together.

Meanwhile, simmer the syrup over low heat until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes.

Set the Gorgonzola on a serving platter, drizzle with port syrup and place the walnuts, bowl of syrup and crackers on the side.

Make Ahead: The nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. The port syrup can be refrigerated for up to 1 week; rewarm before serving.

Colavita Original Balsamic Glace

Colavita-Original-Balsamic-GlaceColavita’s unique reduction of its prized Balsamic Vinegar di Modena will enhance virtually any dish. The silky smooth consistency makes Colavita Original Balsamic Glace perfect for marinating or brushing onto grilled meats, poultry, and fish as well as drizzling onto salads, pasta, risotto, and cheese. The tart yet sweet flavor is a sophisticated complement to strawberries, other fresh fruits, and a variety of desserts. And a swirl of Colavita Balsamic Glace on the plate adds drama to any meal. Gluten free.

As seen in Cooking Light (May 2010). Suzanne Banfield, winner of the 2009 Sutter Home Build a Better Burger Contest, believes Colavita Balsamic Glace gave her Roman Patty Melt Burger the winning touch.  “The magic ingredient is the Colavita Balsamic Glace” says Suzanne.  Colavita Balsamic Glace, a reduction of balsamic vinegar with just 20 calories per serving, lends a tangy flair and rich sweetness to the burger’s peppers and onions topping which compliment the spiciness of the patty, the salty notes in the Pecorino Romano cheese, and the crunch of the bread.
