I saw this idea over on Honest Cooking and have adapted it to use local, seasonal ingredients and you could easily adapt it to use what is local and in-season for you.
Yesterday, I told you one of the ways to use leftover bread is to make crostini, now here is an easy way to use that crostini.
Taking next to no time to make, these sweet, spicy, salty and crunchy mouthfuls are perfect to serve with a glass of bubbles at your New Year’s celebration.
I have once again used the lovely sheep ricotta from Origin Earth for these morsels, but use whatever is available in your local area. I have also made these with Origin Earth Lebanese Sour Cream (a lebane like product) – delicious.
Spicy Peach & Ricotta Crostini
A grind of black pepper can be used instead of the chipotle flake.
To prevent the crostini from going soggy, assemble just prior to serving.
Serves – adjust to the amount you need

Origin Earth Sheep Milk Ricotta
fresh peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
honey – I used local honey from The Naked Honey Pot
Orcona Smoked Chipotle Flake
Spread crostini with a ricotta. Top with a slice or two of peach, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chipotle flake or black pepper and a good grind of sea salt.
