Hey there :)
A friend of my Mom’s has a fig tree. And it appears that fig trees produce quite a lot of figs. Like 15 a day. For weeks now. And as a normal person simply can’t eat 15 figs a day, all those close and distant friends and friend of friends or daughters of friends get a piece of it. Here is where I come in, a lucky receiver, happily welcoming all the free fruit :)
I actually haven’t done a lot of things with figs yet. That’s why I decided to start with something pure and simple. A desert, snack or breakfast idea. Everything comes together in about 7 minutes and you barely can’t mess things up. Perfect for me until I have some experience with figs and how to treat them properly. Once I know how those little buddies work, I will make something more “sophisticated” Until then, this warm yoghurt bowl is just the thing for me :) Hope you like it too.
prep time: 7 minutes +++ yields: one serving
- 2 Figs
- 1 Tbsp. water
- 1 Tbsp. Honey
- dash of cinnamon
- a dollop of sheep’s yoghurt
- Handful of walnuts
In a small pan combine the water, honey and cinnamon and bring to a low boil.
In the meantime wash the figs and remove bigger stems or any party you don’t like to eat. The skin of figs is edible, but if you don’t like it, get rid of it. Quarter or divide into eights.
Add the figs to the pan and stir around a bit. Let simmer for about 3-4 minutes until the liquid will turn a bit red-ish.
In a small bowl put a dollop of yoghurt. Place thefigs on top and sprinkle with some crushed walnuts (you can also roast them if you want) or some granola.
Ready to eat already :)
