Olive Bread Crostini with Spicy Apricot Jam and Herb Cheese ~ Mystery Farmers' Market Delight

 
Have you been to a farmers' market lately?  Well, my friend Priya has, and she came back with a basket of market goods for me to cook with.  Lucky me!


 
I immediately reached out for a crusty load of olive-rosemary bread, amber-colored glass jar of spicy apricot jam, and soft, herb cheese.  Wouldn't they make a perfect appetizer?


Olive Bread Crostini with Spicy Apricot Jam and Herb Cheese
 

Directions

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2.  Slice bread into 1/3 inch slices and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and ground black pepper.

3.  Toast bread on both sides until golden-brown and crusty, about 5 minutes.

4.  Rub garlic over both sides of toast.

 
5.  Spread cheese and jam over the bread and eat immediately.  I am thinking a glass of chilled sparkling wine would go well with the crostini.
