It's that time of year again.
Our fig tree is very strange. It has its first fruit in June but the figs are tasteless and floury. Then the second crop in September are simply delicious.

We make jam, I cook them with duck, we stew them in the oven in red wine and spices (peppercorns, star aniseed, cloves and cinnamon), for more ideas see this post from last year.
One new aperitif recipe we tried this year:
- partially slice the figs into quarters to open them up just a little
- fill with blue cheese
- wrap a thin slice of parma ham around the fig (this helps to keep the cheese inside)
- warm in the oven until the cheese starts to melt
