A GREAT DERBY RECIPE

BLUE CHEESE AND TOASTED WALNUT CROSTINIS WITH KENTUCKY SWEET SORGHUM

I'm always looking for new appetizer recipes for Derby entertaining.
It is especially nice to be able to use ingredients from local farms and businesses.
This fits the bill on both accounts and is delicious!
