Honey Baked Figs with Oranges

Dessert, Uncategorized | November 19, 2011 | By

Figs were on special offer at the supermarket and, as I love them, I bought a pack of four.  Then I had to think what I was going to do with them!  In the end I decided to split them open,  drizzle them with honey and bake them in the oven.

They were probably in the oven for about 20 minutes at 180C, but I just kept an eye on them so they didn’t start to shrink too much.

Then I peeled and segmented some oranges and put them and their juice into a glass serving dish (charity shop purchase!) and put the figs on top.

Served with creme fraiche and a sprinkling of chopped pistachio nuts.  It was a nice light dessert but with the richness of the honey and figs, the creamy acidity of the creme frache and the crunch of the nuts, it was bloody marvelous!

Wow! Looks delicious, I'm so greedy, I tend to eat them as they come, but your recipe must really enhance their taste.

Wow this looks amazing. Love the colours and the flavour combination. The glass serving dish looks great too.
