It’s definitely beginning to feel like Fall. Ingredient-wise, Fall is one of my favorite seasons. And my favorite Fall fruit? Figs! It’s hard to believe that I had my first fig only about two years ago. But I was spoiled. I was in Dubrovnik, Croatia on vacation in August and happened across an open-air market. There were tables full of colorful fruits and vegetables, among them, green and black figs. So I thought why not? And they were sweet, fleshy and absolutely delicious! Needless to say, I went back to that market for figs everyday for the rest of my stay. Every late summer, I look forward to the short season of figs. I usually like to eat them plain, but they are great with other ingredients like ricotta, prosciutto, and honey. In this case, I had leftover ricotta in my fridge and used just that and honey for tartines. They’re quick and simple to make – and yummy!
- Spread some ricotta over each Ciabatta slice.
- Drizzle honey over the ricotta.
- Layer the fig wedges on top.
- Drizzle with more honey, if desired.
