Apple season kicks off this weekend on all 4 of our Eckert Farms. Our offices and barns have been a bee hive of activity as Team Eckert gets ready for the weeks of fall fun ahead!
In our cooking classroom, our culinary team started experimenting with apples for an upcoming event at the Belleville farm called Wine in the Orchard. We are still working on the line up of wines but we do have some yummy apple recipes ready to go. This recipe for Apple Crostini with Bacon will be making an appearance during this special evening of wine tastings and orchard tours.
Crostini recipes almost always include some kind of crusty bread, this recipe is a breadless version and it is just down right delicious if you ask me! This recipe is the perfect time to use your apple machine if you have one. If not, small hand cut slices will do just fine. A quick time in the oven melts the apple, cheese and bacon together. Then, a drizzle of Eckert’s Pure Honey sweetens the deal. And that’s it… super easy and super delish!
Hurry…. go check your calendar and see if you can join us for this fall favorite:
