Serves: 8
INGREDIENTS
  • 9 ounces dried figs
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 baguette
  • Olive oil or cooking spray
  • 5 ounces goat cheese
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Remove the stems and cut the dried figs into quarters.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the figs and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 20 minutes, until the figs are soft.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler to low.
  4. Slice the baguette into thin slices.
  5. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and spray or lightly brush with oil.
  6. Broil for 4-5 minutes until crisp and set aside.
  7. Return to the figs. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the figs to a food processor. Add the 2 tablespoons honey and half of the cooking water. Process until smooth, gradually adding more cooking water until the desired consistency is reached. (I had about ¼ cup remaining)
  8. Serve the bread and fig jam with goat cheese.
