Pepper and Caper Crostini

January 11, 2016

Author Notes: I love something punchy and full of flavour on top of a crunchy piece of toasted bread and find it an easy prepare ahead canapé to serve before lunch or supper. This time I have used peppers which cook down to silky soft sweetness with very little attention. The capers add a little salty bite and the parsley brings a verdant freshness. They are delicious.Anna May
