Goat Cheese Ball with Candied Walnuts

Recipe by Jason Hill – CookingSessions.com
This gourmet cheese ball recipe uses just three premium ingredients — goat cheese, candied walnuts and a savory cherry and balsamic vinegar jam. I love the premium quality and whole fruits used in Lemon Bird Jams, but in a pinch you can use your favorite jam. Just be sure it has nice bits of chunky fruit in it.
