A Peach of a Recipe

Jersey peaches are in season and available at most farm markets in our region.

Jersey Peach Bruschetta

1 baguette, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
3 large Jersey Fresh peaches (we used both white and yellow)
2 TB Jersey Fresh basil, chiffonade
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 cup Jersey Fresh honey
1 tsp hot sauce, or more as desired (we used Hank’s “so pitted” hot sauce made with Jersey peaches)
4 oz goat cheese

25m prep / 18m cook time

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place baguette slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush both sides with 3 TB of the olive oil. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. In a medium bowl, add the peaches, basil, salt and 1 TB olive oil. Mix gently to combine.
  4. In a small bowl, add vinegar, honey and hot sauce. Whisk together, adding more hot sauce to taste.
  5. Spread goat cheese on baguette slices. Spoon the peach basil mixture on top of the goat cheese. Drizzle with the hot honey.
  6. Serve immediately.
