Perfect for a weekend brunch or outdoor gathering, this blackberry prosciutto appetizer delivers a rich combination of textures and flavors that is simply mouthwatering. Salty, bold-flavored prosciutto pairs well with fruit or cheese in this bite-size starter. The best part is that you can toast the baguette and make blackberry mixture early so that you have more time to spend with your guests.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
