Given that my blog is called caramelised figs it seems fitting that I should talk a little bit about this delicacy!
To make mine I halve them length ways, roll in sugar and then gently cook in butter over a low heat until caramelised. When they’re a lovely golden brown colour I remove them from the pan and either eat them as is or have the with ice cream or crème fraiche for something a bit different.
One of the best things you can do is take a leaf out of Nigel Slater’s book (Real Fast Puddings) and serve the caramelised figs with crème fraiche in a croissant. In his book Nigel uses apples but it works just as well with figs! Enjoy!
