More Figs!

SAM_2857

I've stated before how obsessed I am with figs.  I snatch them up whenever I see them at the store.  Jasper does not share my love of these little jewels, which means more for me!  Bwahahahaha!  ...Okay I'm fine now, sorry about that.

Mostly I like to eat my figs with cheese - this makes me ridiculously happy.  Coincidentally (or not), I also like to eat my cheese with fig jam.  Anyway, one of the most popular pairings for figs is blue cheese, so I wanted to play around with that a bit.

I broiled the figs with blue cheese so that they were hot and melty, but I didn't stop there...

I topped them off with crispy prosciutto and honey.

It's okay if you drool a little, I understand.

Going in a sweeter direction - I also made some balsamic glazed figs with mascarpone.

Adapted from this recipe - I tossed the figs with a glaze made from balsamic vinegar, sugar, orange juice, and orange zest and broiled them.  Then I served them on top of mascarpone whipped with cream and sugar.

The cream melting into the hot figs with the sweet and tangy glaze... yeah - this was pretty much heaven.
