This Christmas we have fallen in love with FIGS! I have tried to do them two different ways. One with balsamic syrup and one with honey. I prefer the balsamic syrup over honey.
Preheat your oven to 375F, while the oven is preheating wash and slice the figs in half. Take your baking dish and line it with tin foil. Arrange the figs cut side up and drizzle olive oil over figs. I like to also sprinkle fresh ground pepper and kosher salt over top. Then bake for 15-20 minutes.
While that is baking take a pot out and pour in balsamic vinegar, bring to a boil and monitor closely so that the balsamic vinegar reduces to a syrup. Watch closely though so that it doesn’t turn to candy (unfortunately my first batch did this!).
Once your Figs have finished in the oven take them out and arrange them on your serving plate. Then take the balsamic reduction and drizzle it over your Figs. I also like to serve mine with a good piece of soft goat cheese…YUMMY!
