salt and honey.

This is peanut butter toast, version 2.0.  The complexities of flavor in such an excruciatingly simple meal are so satisfying.  Freshly ground peanut butter, a sprinkling of sea salt, and a drizzle of lavender honey come together on a humble piece of toast to create something almost mysterious.  The key here is purity of ingredients.  The peanut butter must be freshly ground, so to be a soft nutty paste, free of any additives or preservatives (freshly ground peanut butter should always be refrigerated and will last several weeks).  Sea salt, Maldon if you have it, brings out the richness of the peanut taste, without changing it.  A drizzle of lavender honey is the final ingredient and the pièce de résistance.  The floral notes of sweet honey contrast to the rich nutty butter, to make your breakfast complete.   Serve with piping hot coffee. It's good to the last bite.
