Chile Jam:

  1. Combine apple slices, sugar, hot sauce, and chile flakes in a small saucepot. Add enough water to cover apples. Cook on medium heat until the apple slices begin to fall apart, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, add salt. Pour jam mixture into blender and blend until smooth. Let cool.

To Assemble:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Using a pastry brush, coat one side of each baguette slice with olive oil. Place on a sheet pan olive oil side down. Place in the oven on the top rack. Toast for 5-6 minutes, until the bread just begins to turn golden brown. Let cool.
  2. Place 1-2 slices of avocado on each baguette slice. Drizzle each with 1-2 teaspoons of the chile jam. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves and Hawaiian black salt. Lightly drizzle with olive oil. Serve.

*A large Fresh California Avocado weighs about 8 oz.
