Directions

  1. Use a sharp knife to mark an "X" on the top of each fig, being careful not to cut more than 3/4 of the way down the fruit.
  2. Spread open each fig 'blossom', to expose the pink center. Arrange the figs on a platter.
  3. Use a small spoon to fill each fig with marmalade, Greek yogurt, and honey. Dust with cinnamon.
  4. Finish with small chunks of herbed chevre, walnut pieces, and fresh mint sprigs. Serve immediately.
  5. Good with Carr's whole wheat crackers or baguette slices, for a more substantial snack.
  6. VARIATION: Substitute creme fraiche for the yogurt, mascarpone cheese with lemon zest for the herbed chevre, and green pistachios instead of walnuts. Drizzle with honey and dust with cinnamon -- yum!
