Fancy Figs

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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!

    The fig ‘recipe’ is lovely. Your recipe for finding the treasure of dance via the guidance of the perfect teacher is, well, it’s a most incredible story. You excavated a piece of you that was buried, waiting patiently to be found! Good digging!
