Apricot-Roasted Chili Sauce

1/2 cup onion diced
1½ cups apricot preserves
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
¼ cup roasted red or jalapeno peppers, coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp garlic chopped
¼ cup brown sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

Stir onion, apricots, vinegar, peppers, brown sugar, and 1½ cups water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook, adding more water if too thick, until fruit is soft and liquid is almost completely evaporated. Let cool. Do Ahead: Chutney can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and chill.

Nutella Dessert

Nutella dessert

Ingredients:

6 small cooked pizza crusts
2 Tbsp. butter
Sea salt
1 small jar Nutella
1 pint Fresh raspberries
Fresh mint, chopped

Directions:

PREPARE flatbreads by aerating the dough with a fork to keep the dough from “puffing”. Bake in a 425 degree preheated oven, on a pizza stone, until golden brown and crispy. Brush lightly with melted butter, brushing smoothly over the bread, and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.

Smear some Nutella spread on the crust and top with fresh raspberries. Garnish with fresh mint, and a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.
