Mallorca, Figs & Katja's Recipe

by Anja

We just came back from a few splendid days in Mallorca.

September is my favorite time for a visit to the island. Summer has already come to an end in Switzerland, even with sometimes sunny days you can definitely smell the autumn. But in Mallorca, summer is still at its heat.

So, we spent some hot and sunny days at our favorite Finca, enjoyed lazy hours, the pool, and of course some wonderful food. We indulged in serrano ham, freshly caught local fish, figs picked fresh from the tree. What a delight!

When we came home I wanted more, just to keep the idea of summer for a bit longer. So, I hurried to the market and bought a basket of fresh figs, Spanish ones...

And finally I got to try and enjoy a recipe my friend Katja was kind enough to share...

Katja's Baked Figs with Goat Cheese & Honey

Preheat oven to about 180°C (350°F).

Cut fresh figs in half, the cut a little opening into each half. Fill some goat cheese into the opening and drizzle some honey (Katja recommended acacia honey) on top. Place figs in an ovenproof dish and put into hot oven for about 15 minutes.

Thanks, Katja, for this wonderful idea!
