ripe figs with ricotta & honey

it is a given

if i were to find myself
naked
roaming the garden of eden

surely i would be
occupied
with
plucking and eating figs
not with
modesty
of.
any.
sort.

figs are good
fresh or dried
plain
&
gilded

for a simple and gorgeous treat
serve these
as an appetizer or dessert
gilded figs
ripe fresh figs
ricotta cheese (fresh if you can get it)
sea salt
honey
toasted walnuts

slice the figs in half, and put a generous scoop of fresh ricotta on top.  drizzle your best honey to just cover the ricotta, sprinkle a few grains of sea salt and top with a walnut half.  serve chilled or room temperature.
**tastes great accompanying a cold glass of prosecco

  1. Looks good! We have figs on the tree right now, but no sunshine to ripen them... just rain and more rain.
