This is a fantastic little starter, the figs look just like little flowers. If you can, use brown sugar and wild honey, the give more rustic taste. Original recipe is from Conrad Gallagher's "In 3 easy Steps" cookbook.

These were outstanding! The star of an extended family luncheon with a "high tea" theme. We used procuitto for the parma and I used homemade greek yogurt for the stuffing. I didn't think they looked much like flowers but still cute and the flavor was to die for! (I burned the second batch for lack of watchfulness though... it was soo disappointing!)
- 8 slices parma ham
- 16 -20 fresh figs
- 4 tablespoons ricotta cheese
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons honey (preferably wild)
Directions See How It's Made
- Open the figs by scoring them on the top and gently squeeze from the bottom so they "open up".
- Wrap the ham around the open figs, and spoon some ricotta in to the openings.
- Sprinkle the sugar on the ricotta, and place under hot grill until the figs are warm and cheese starts to brown.
- Drizzle with honey and serve immediately.
