Figs drizzled with warm citrus honey
Fresh figs are so beautiful and flavourful, sometimes the simplest preparation is best. Here, a simple orange-infused honey and a bit of yogurt allows their flavour to shine. It only takes a brief stint in the microwave to gently warm the honey and completely infuse it with the flavour of the orange zest. Use any kind of honey you like, keeping in mind that the general rule is that the darker the colour, the stronger the flavour. These figs make a wonderful dessert, but it is equally perfect to serve for breakfast, perhaps with a little more yogurt.
