It’s fig season! Easy gourmet appie recipe
Yesterday I was sent home from a dear friend’s place with a purse full of fresh figs from the tree in her back yard (that’s why I like to carry such a big purse – you never know when the product of someone’s garden is going to need transportation to your kitchen). Yum!! There are few things I enjoy more than fresh figs.
I had a party to go to last night, and all I could think about were figs figs figs. So I did a little research online, and came across this recipe for “Elegant Fig Appetizers”. Minimal ingredients, and it took all of 10 minutes to make as I was rushing to get party-pretty. It was absolutely delicious and a total hit. Thank you to Christine M on allrecipes.com for the recipe.
- 12 fresh figs, halved
- 4 ounces herbed goat cheese (chevre)
- 24 raw almonds
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- Preheat the oven broiler for high heat.
- Place the fig halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Top each half with about 1/2 teaspoon goat cheese. Place one almond on each, press to push the cheese slightly into each fig.
- Broil the figs in the preheated oven until the cheese is soft and the almonds are turning a rich shade of brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the broiler and let cool for 5 minutes. Arrange the figs on a serving platter and drizzle with honey and balsamic vinegar. Serve warm.
