Directions

  1. Trim tough stems from figs, make a partial cut through each, at least halfway. Do not cut all the way through.
  2. Mix cheese with rosemary.
  3. Using a baby spoon, scoop some cheese & smear into opening in fig. It's ok if it shows.
  4. If figs are small, cut ham in half lengthwise.
  5. Wrap 1 slice ham around each fig, secure with toothpick, put figs on cookie sheet. Cover & chill if making ahead.
  6. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve, remove figs from refrigerator & preheat oven to 350'.
  7. Put figs in oven, remove when ham sizzles, not burns, about 8-10 minutes.
  8. This appetizer is unusual in the combination of flavors & textures. You get salty, sweet, crunchy (fig seed), chewy, creamy, tart, savory all at once. Great with a good Port. I got this recipe many years ago and it is always popular.
