Fiddledy figs!

Found via: www.coeurdela.com 
which also led me to a delicious looking fig jam recipe.
That's definitely going on my to-do-list.
It's no secret how much I love figs.
All sorts, raw, baked, preserved you name it… 
if it's fig related I'll eat it.

But one of my most loved ways of enjoying them
(besides hunking into them fresh from the tree)
is baked in honey and served with Ice Cream.
Deeeelish!
Sharing the recipe over with Anna & co @ Much Love.
First prep your figs;
wash, dry and rub a little oil on them before placing them
in a baking pan, stem side up.
Cut a cross in the top of each fig, cutting almost to the bottom
then drizzle with a few teaspoons of honey.
Top each one with a piece of butter.
Bake the figs in an oven at 200℃ 
till they open up like flowers (around 8-10mins).
Put the figs on plates to serve.
Add a teaspoon of water to the pan and return to the oven for 1 min, 
then stir to make a sauce.

Drizzle the syrup over the warm figs and serve with ice cream on top or to the side.
Dig in and enjoy!
Bon App├ętit.

What an inspired recipe! I look forward to trying it ~ I am partial towards recipes that are simple to make, but full of flavour, so one doesn't have to slave in the kitchen all day, but can still "deliver" - to the table! :)
Wishing you a lovely, *much love* week :)
