Prosciutto & Mushroom Duxelle Crostini
This mushroom duxelle crostini is impressive and flavorful but so easy. Duxelle is a mixture of minced mushrooms with shallots and herbs. Pair with PEJU Club Exclusive, The Farm for a simply delicious pairing. The earthy mushrooms feature plenty of umami flavors, which compliment the saltiness of the prosciutto and make for a smooth interaction with this Sangiovese & Cabernet blend. Make it in advance by preparing the mushroom duxelle mixture, toasting the bread, chop the parsley, and have them lined up and ready to go.
