What you'll need:
- 2 tbsp runny honey
- A couple of sprigs of thyme
- 6 ripe figs, halved
- 2 tbsp pine nuts
- 125g soft goats curd or cheese
Time: 10 minutes
First, infuse your honey with the aromatic thyme. Put the honey in a saucepan, and warm through on a medium heat with the thyme sprigs tossed in. After a few minutes, set aside to cool, and allow those flavours to come together.
On a hot griddle pan, place your figs cut side down. Cook until charred and beginning to caramelise. Meanwhile, toast your pine nuts in a dry frying pan over a medium heat for 3 minutes.
Take your fig halves and arrange on a plate, cut side up. Season well with salt and pepper, top with a spoonful of curd, drizzle with the infused honey and then scatter with the pine nuts. Yum!
If you are looking for a deliciously perfect pairing, a refreshing rosé from Heathcote would work so well. The Foster e Rocco Rosé 2017 is an ideal pairing for an amazing festive canape!
