Apricot and Honey Crostini

One of the best parts of summer is the fresh fruit. Fruit is just too good right now. I’m a big fan of grapefruit and peaches… but recently I’ve been seriously loving apricots. Truth is, I never really tried apricots before. Dried apricots, yes. But those are more like candy than fresh fruit. When we were visiting our friends Howie and Jana, their friend made these incredible appetizers with apricot. Well, I’ve been craving it ever since. (One night Garrett asked what I wanted from Seamless and I told him I wanted “Liz’s crostini” and he responded, “I don’t think she’s on Seamless yet.” Ha!)
While I’ve been trying to cook more, I don’t even know if this counts as a recipe. It’s super easy and is more like stacking things together!

The simplest of ingredients: Baguette, Ricotta, Apricots, and honey.
Really, that’s it.
Slice the baguette into 3/4″ rounds. Toast the rounds*. Spread a little bit of ricotta on each slice. Top with a sliver of apricot (or two!)** and then drizzle honey.
* I don’t have a toaster oven, so I popped them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 350.
** I like cutting a few extra apricots up to snack on!

Yum! I’ve been making these as a little mid-afternoon snack and as a side for dinner. It tastes how I imagine summer would taste. Savory from the bread and cheese, sweet with the apricot, and sticky from the honey. Delicious.

Anyone else a fan of apricots? Do you have a favorite summer recipe that uses fruit?

That looks so good! And now that you mention it, i don't think I've ever actually had ripe apricots (definitely dried ones though!) I will most certainly try this out 🙂

The cheese you got is, hands down, my favorite ricotta. I did the same thing you did after having ricotta and honey crostini at Corsino one night!
