Perk up breakfast with some farmers’ market tricks. Take simple toast (made from mouth-watering, freshly baked bread) and top it with the sweet essence of caramelized onion, and instead of jam, add grilled apricots and figs bursting with natural sugars. These exceptional fruits grace us with their presence only briefly. Capture these flavors while you can!
