Barbecued Figs with Honey
12 large ripe figs
melted butter to brush
4 tbsp runny Greek honey
grated zest and juice of 2 oranges
Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream to serve
1 Heat a barbecue. Make a slit in each fig. Take two large sheets of foil and lay one sheet on top of the other. Brush lightly with melted butter.
2 Put the figs in the centre of the foil. Bring the sides of the foil up together and pour in the honey and orange zest and juice. Seal the edges of the foil together to loosely enclose the figs in a ‘parcel’.
3 Put the foil parcel on the hot barbecue and leave to cook for 10–15 minutes.
4 Open up the foil slightly at the top and cook for a further 2–3 minutes until the juices become syrupy.
5 Serve the hot figs in their juices with some Greek yogurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
