Our amazing chef for the Apricot Lane Farms WWOOFer program, Ofelia, inspired this dish. She thinks it’s so simple that it almost isn’t a recipe, but I disagree! Simple combinations of fresh ingredients are the best.
1 cup Mascarpone cheese
4 soft Medjool dates, pitted and coarsely chopped
2 dashes cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
pinch lemon zest
10 figs, cut in half (stem to bottom)
raw honey, to drizzle
To a small bowl, add Mascarpone cheese. Using a hand mixer, beat until the cheese looks like thick whipped cream, approximately 20-30 seconds. Add dates, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest. Mix on medium to combine. Scoop approximately 1 tablespoon onto the center of each fig. Place figs on a serving platter and drizzle with raw honey. Enjoy!
