Figs with Mascarpone and Honey

Contributed by Katie Sweetman, from the Real Food Right Now series.

Fresh figs

While there are many recipes for fig tarts and the like, sometimes it’s best not to fuss with what nature intended. Ripened figs are delightful unadorned, but go to the next level with a small dollop of mascarpone cheese and a drizzle of honey. Split your figs in half and top the rose colored fleshy inside with the soft cheese and honey. Other ideas include goat cheese instead of mascarpone, a slice of prosciutto and a pinch of minced rosemary.
