To be honest, I did't know what kind of creature it is when I first glanced over it on open market. So, I asked the stall owner how to eat this. She picked up a soft fig and then cut half let me taste it. I'm impressed by her generous and the mild taste. The owner told me British usually add some honey and bake for 5 to 10 minutes. It gives the fruit flavour. I fall in love with the delicate fruit. However, I should try to roast figs with honey. It could be a good dessert option!
According to Wikipedia, the fig fruit is actually the flower of the tree, known as an inflorescence,in which the flowers and seeds grow together to form a single mass.
Recipe is couldn't be easy and only take you like 10 mins.
1. 無花果 wigs
2. 每個無花果2茶匙或1湯匙的蜂蜜 2 teaspoon honey for each fig
3. 一些些肉桂粉 a little bit cinnamon
4. 榛果類,核桃,開心果或杏仁都可,搗成粗顆粒,一顆無花果約一湯匙的量 Hazelnuts or pistachios or walnuts, roughly chopped (allow 1 teaspoon per fig)
Preheat oven to 200C/350F. Clean and pat dry figs, retaining stem. Cut into the figs to make a cross on the top. Place on a baking sheet, and drizzle with honey and cinnamon.
沒有第三步,撒上堅果,完成! Sprinkle nuts. No more step 3! DONE
I like the roast fig with honey! The flavour turns to stronger but not too sweet at all. Especially, when I open the oven, the cinnamon smell good! I enjoy the texture of nuts with soft figs as well. I think it could be an emergent dessert if I got guests have afternoon tea or dinner at home and I didn't prepare dessert. Anyway, fig rocks!
