To begin, make the red onion jam. Place a little oil in a large pan and cook the finely sliced onion and garlic with the salt until they have released their juices and are soft
  • oil
  • 400g of red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4g of salt
2
Wrap the cloves, juniper berries and thyme leaves in a muslin cloth then add to the pan with the balsamic vinegar and redcurrant jelly. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 juniper berries
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 50ml of balsamic vinegar
  • 350g of redcurrant jelly
3
Remove the muslin cloth wrap from the pan and chill the contents of the pan in the fridge until needed. It should resemble a jam
4
Preheat the oven to 175°C/gas mark 4

To make the base, roll out the puff pasty to a thickness of 1/2cm and place in the oven for 10–15 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool then flake the puff pastry and blend with the seeds and salt in a bowl. Use the butter to bind the pastry together again
  • salt
  • 120g of puff pastry
  • 20g of sesame seeds
  • 20g of poppy seeds
  • 120g of unsalted butter
6
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and roll the pastry out to a thickness of 1/2cm. Place in the tray, pressing firmly into place so it's even and flat. Leave to set in the fridge for at least 1 hour

To make the topping, beat the cheeses together until smooth. Place the cream in a small pan, bring to the boil and set aside
  • 100g of cream cheese
  • 250g of Bosworth Ash Log
  • 150ml of double cream
8
Soak the gelatine in cold water for 4 minutes, squeeze out any excess water and whisk through the warm cream to dissolve. Whisk this with the cheese until well-combined and smooth
  • 1 gelatine leaf
9
Pour the cheese mixture over the pre-set base and allow to set until firm, for 2–3 hours

Using a 2.5 cm pastry cutter, or sharp knife, portion the cheesecakes into rounds, squares or shapes of your choice. Top each individual cheesecake with the red onion jam, add 2 pieces of micro cress and serve
  • 1 handful of micro cress
