Oven Roasted Figs

10-12 ripe fresh black or green figs
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
2-3 tablespoons brown sugar


Heat oven to 375.

Stem and quarter figs. Place in a baking dish that will hold them in a single layer and spoon honey over them, then crumble the sugar over the top.

Toss gently, cover tightly with foil, and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove foil, gently turn figs in syrup, and cook uncovered for another 15 minutes or until tender.
figs are best if they can rest a few hours to allow the juices to thicken. They can be served as is, or with thyme, some lemon zest, or a shot of pastis.
