A sweet and simple way to start or end the day. Indulge in a labor less treat this long weekend with Honey Glazed Figs With Yogurt & Lavender Essence.
Fresh figs are a decadent treat that require little fuss. While taking a walk in town, I stopped in front of one of my favorite shops to find a linen-lined basket filled with fresh figs along with a note “Please help yourself”–I am always touched by the generosity of gardeners sharing their bounty. I picked up a few figs and they were too tempting to let sit around. The fresh, raw beauty of the fruit inspired the simple preparation that followed.
Figs are luscious and sweet with a slight chewiness and crunch. Adding a honey glaze and cool creamy yogurt or ricotta cheese you have available, along with the essence of lavender, is a simple way to elevate these jewels.
A simple fruit then becomes ripe figs bathed in a sweet pink honey glaze and lavished atop creamy yogurt dusted with the essence of lavender. This little jewel is an instant way to dress up a Labor Day BBQ or just a quiet treat to enjoy by yourself!
To create your own beautiful bowl is quick and easy–all you need are a few ingredients and 5 minutes. Wishing you a beautiful labor less weekend from Bijouxs!
As always, enjoy. B
