When I lived in California, I couldn't wait until the farmer's markets had figs...big, juicy, amazing to eat! They are hard to find in Colorado, and are less flavorful than the ones in CA. So I came up with this little appetizer to showcase some of my favorite ingredients.

The addition of prosciutto sounds wonderful! Being that my paternal grampa was from Greece I highly recommend trying this recipe with Feta instead of goat cheese;-) They taste awesome grilled too! One more tip for those who might like to try an additional flavoring is to whisk together an equal amount of honey and red wine vinegar for drizzling. Read More

I made this recipe last night for dinner guests and it was a huge hit! Even those who have never had figs or thought they wouldn't like figs loved them. Three minor changes I made were 1) to use Panache Tiger Strip Fig 2) topped with diced thick sliced bacon instead of prosciutto and 3) I didn't drizzle with honey as the figs were juicy and sweet on their own. Truly delicious! Shared the recipe with friends; will definitely make this again. Read More

6:30 a.m. Just read this and had fresh figs on my kitchen counter (from my tree). Also had soft mild cheese bacon honey. I immediately put everything together being as quiet as possible and enjoyed this little bit of heaven. And Deeli's honey/vinegar mix is genius! Read More

We make a similar version at our house. All the same ingredients minus the honey. But most important we serve it raw! I usually cut the prosciutto into strips and wrap around my 1/4 fig with desired amount of goat cheese. I've made them with light and dark figs and plain and herbed cheese. It all comes down to taste. I say skip the oven! Read More

Great taste! I whisked honey with equal parts of aged Balsamic vinegar for a sweet/tart finish and being Greek I used Feta. Read More

I forgot the honey. I'll try it with honey tomorrow but I did not suffer for the lack of it. Easy and yummy Read More
