INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) Liquid Honey Beehive
  • 12 fresh figs
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 oz (125 g) prosciutto, thinly sliced (12 pieces)
  • Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

  • 1 In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, add balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey; bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. Let cool.
  • 2 Carefully cut figs in half vertically. Using a small spoon, scoop out approximately a ½ tsp (2 mL) of fig from the centre of each half.
  • 3 In a small bowl, combine cheese and remaining honey. Stir until smooth.
  • 4 Fill each fig with 2 tsp (10 mL) of cheese mixture. Wrap each fig with 1 slice of prosciutto.
  • 5 Place filled figs on a medium-high grill and cook until cheese begins to melt. Place onto a serving dish and drizzle with balsamic glaze to serve.
  • 6 Chef’s Tip: Try using brie, goat cheese or your favourite soft cheese to replace the gorgonzola.
