I recently went to a cocktail party where the hostess had served roasted figs in balsamic vinegar and honey. They were delicious. Â The presentation looked so warm and welcoming. She paired it with roasted almonds and blue cheese with slices of bread. The flavors were amazing. This was something that was a simple to prepare and wonderful to serve to a large or small group as the weather is starting to turn colder.
1o Figs – cut in half and take the stems off
6 Tablespoons of Balsamic Â Vinegar
2 Tablespoons of Honey
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
Pre Heat Oven at 350
On a jelly role sheet (a cookie sheet with sides) or baking dish place cut figs. In a saucepan heat 3 tablespoons of Vinegar, Honey, Sugar Cinnamon, and Olive Oil and cook until simmering. Evenly cover the figs with the sauce and place in oven for 30 minutes then take out every 10 minutes and brush with vinegar. Take out when figs are nice and tender! Ready to serve.
Things that are paired well with Figs: Almonds, Anise, Blue Cheese, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Goat’s Cheese, Hard Cheese, Hazelnut, Mint, Orange, Prosciutto, Raspberry, Soft Cheese, Vanilla, and Walnut.
I am going to make this for a Xmas eve appetizer. Thanks Patty!
