peach toasts + habanero infused honey


Here's a quick little snack that utilizes yet another piece of produce that we cannot get enough of  right now, Peaches. There really isn't much to say, beyond get this while you can. I know you can sense the recurring theme here, but if not, I will spell it out. Peaches are only good for a short time. Like when they are in season. So, you should eat lots of them. (Broken record, I know) You should also not fool around with them to much and add all kinds of crap that covers up how awesome they are. Let us help.

Crunchy, creamy, sweet, heat, herb, peach.
