Ingredients

  • 8 ripe figs
  • large knob of butter
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • handful shelled pistachio nuts or almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon or mixed spice
  • mascarpone or Greek yogurt, to serve

Tip

Make it from the storecupboard
Swap the figs for canned peaches or pears.

Make it boozy
Splash a few tbsp of armagnac or brandy over the fruit before grilling.

Method

  1. Heat grill to medium high. Cut a deep cross in the top of each fig then ease the top apart like a flower. Sit the figs in a baking dish and drop a small piece of the butter into the centre of each fruit. Drizzle the honey over the figs, then sprinkle with the nuts and spice.

  2. Grill for 5 mins until figs are softened and the honey and butter make a sticky sauce in the bottom of the dish. Serve warm, with dollops of mascarpone or yogurt.
