I tried out Farm Fresh to You over this past week because I wasn't sure if I would have enough time to go to the farmers market on Saturday like I usually do. I would like to mention that they did a great job putting together my produce! I got super fresh stuff. I could tell that they picked everything the morning of. I even found a couple bugs which is a good sign that they do not use pesticides. When I first got produce boxes and went to the farmers market years ago, I was put off by finding bugs on my veggies and fruits but it's not so bad! Just pick them off. There's usually only a couple.
In my box, I was pleasantly surprised to see mission figs. I adore fresh figs. They are such a treat because they are really hard to find very fresh and when you do, they are incredibly delicious. I was so excited that I couldn't decide what to do with them. I was contemplating whether or not to eat them raw or put them in a salad and then, I decided to roast them. I really put this much thought into everything I eat. Lol!
1 pint ripe mission figs, stems removed and cut in half
2 tbs unsalted butter
2 tbs honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place figs on baking sheet facing up. Melt butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt on a saute pan over the stove (this should be quick and be sure not to burn the butter). Drizzle butter honey mixture on the figs. Roast the figs for 10 to 15 minutes 'til they are slightly caramelized.
These would be delicious on a cheese platter because it would pair well with a gorgonzola cheese or creamy cheese like brie or camembert and pistachios. I just popped them in my mouth and chewed happily.
