Local Tomato & Goat Cheese Crostini's
We've got an amazing summer bounty of tomatoes here at the Co-op! We decided to feature them in a delicious appetizer using other local ingredients. This recipe is SUPER local, and features bread from Central Illinois Bakehouse, goat cheese from Prairie Fruits Farm, basil from Green Pantry Nursery, and honey from Sasse's Apiary!
