How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a hardwood charcoal fire. In a bowl, whisk the crème fraîche with the honey.

Step 2    

Brush both sides of the bread slices with butter and generously sprinkle with sugar. Grill the bread over moderately high heat, turning once, until crisp and caramelized, 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let cool.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, toss the berries with the 1/4 cup of sugar and the salt. Spread the berries on a perforated grill sheet or in a grill basket and grill over moderately high heat, tossing, until starting to burst, 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly.

Step 4    

Spoon the berries on the crostini and top with dollops of the honey crème fraîche.

Suggested Pairing

Brachetto d’Acqui, a lightly sweet sparkling red from Piedmont, is outstanding with berry desserts.
