Balsamic & Prosciutto Figs

I love figs.  It's almost that time of year where you can find them fresh everywhere, so I thought I would post my go-to summer appetizer.  This one is great for anything from a backyard bbq to a romantic meal for two.

Thanks to Chatelaine for a quick and easy, yet elegant and delicious recipe.




Balsamic & Prosciutto Figs
2 T balsamic vinegar
2 T honey
16 small fresh figs
3 T goat cheese
4 prosciutto slices each cut in 4 pieces

Bring vinegar & honey to boil in small saucepan.  Cook until syrupy, 4 minutes.  Set aside to cool.  Trim stems off figs.  Quarter figs, cutting ¾’s of the way down.  Stuff each fig with ½ tsp cheese, piece of prosciutto, and drizzle with ½ tsp syrup.
