Baked Figs Recipe

We have a large fig tree in our back yard. Every August thur September we have fresh figs. We have fig bars, fig cookies, we have canned figs, we freeze figs. We even have fresh figs off of the tree, i have a baked fig recipe for you to end the end. After you have tried this baked figs recipe let me know how much you and your family enjoyed this recipe. I used dried bay leaves and placed them in the baking dish with the wine and extra zest. I removed the bay leaves before serving.

Ingredients:

12 dried figs

1 orange zest, removed in large strips with a vegetable peeler

6 fresh bay leaves

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup sweet wine

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Cut a small horizontal slit in each fig, being careful not to cut all the way through. Cut orange zest into a dozen 1-inch long pieces, and tear or cut each bay leaf in half. Stuff each fig with 1 piece orange zest, half of a bay leaf and 1 almond.

3. Pack the stuffed figs into a small baking dish that will hold them in a snug,even layer. Scatter over any additional almonds and extra orange zest if you’re left with some.

4. Pour the wine evenly over the figs, place another baking dish over the figs to weigh them down, and press firmly to really get the figs quite flat and saturated with the wine. Place the whole thing, including the second baking dish, into the oven and bake 20 minutes.

5. Serve figs hot, warm, or at room temperature, alongside just about any cheese.
