Recipe 5: Roasted Figs with Honey and Marsala


8 fresh figs

2 tablespoons or so runny honey

splash or two Marsala wine

dollop ricotta cheese


Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.

Cut a deep cross down into each fig, nearly to the bottom, then squeeze the sides of each fig to expose the juicy flesh. Place the figs into a lidded baking dish.

Drizzle over the honey and Marsala wine, ensuring some runs down inside the figs. Cover with the lid.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Serve the figs immediately with ricotta cheese and the boozy syrup from the baking dish. Alternatively, serve with ice cream, custard, cream or mascarpone.
