When grilling or broiling any stone fruit, look for fruit that is juicy and ripe but still firm-tender. You may easily substitute nectarines or plums for the apricots as the season progresses.



Cut apricots in half lengthwise and remove pits. Place apricots in a bowl. Combine olive oil, honey, lime juice, thyme leaves and cayenne and gently toss with the apricots.

Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat and grill apricots about 2 minutes to a side or until golden and sizzling. Make a little crostini by brushing the bread slices with olive oil and cooking them on the grill until lightly toasted.

Arrange 2 apricot halves on each crostini; scatter with Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue Cheese and chopped almonds and garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme.
