Makes 16 bruschetta

½ baguette, cut into 16 ½-inch-thick slices
¼ cup olive oil
Coarse sea salt, such as Maldon
Freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces goat cheese
Hayfields Market Plum Chutney (recipe below) or your favorite chutney
1-2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly brush both sides of bread slices with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange bread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let toast cool slightly, then top each slice with an even amount of goat cheese and a small dollop of chutney. Sprinkle with thyme and more salt and pepper to taste; serve immediately.

Hayfields Market Plum Chutney

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine 3½ pounds pitted and chopped plums (about 8 cups); 1 finely chopped medium red onion; ½ cup dried currants; ¼ cup cider vinegar; 2 cloves finely chopped garlic; 1 tablespoon mustard seeds; 1 teaspoon fine sea salt; and ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until fruit breaks down and mixture is reduced by a third, 30 to 40 minutes. Add organic sugar, to taste, if desired. Distribute chutney among 6 pint jars and seal with lids; refrigerate for up to 3 months.
