Honey baked figs with air-dried ham, Yorkshire blue cheese and walnuts
This is delicious, easy and adaptable – it can be served as a light lunch with bitter salad leaves, as a great dinner party starter (pop it in the middle of the table for all to share), or as a savoury course. And you can make it without the ham for a vegetarian version.


Ingredients
Serves 4
  • 12 figs 
  • 4 tbsps runny honey
  • 200g Yorkshire blue cheese
  • 12 slices good quality air-dried ham (Serrano or Iberico, for instance) 
  • 2 tbsps good quality rapeseed oil 
  • 200g walnut halves
  • Bitter salad leaves such as curly endive, chicory or forced dandelion leaf (optional)



Method
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5.
  2. Cut a cross in the top of each fig, almost, but not all the way, to the bottom. Gently open the figs out and place a crumbled piece of Yorkshire blue cheese in the top of each one. 
  3. Wrap a slice of the ham around the fig: you may need to fold the ham in half lengthways to wrap it around the fig neatly.
  4. Place the figs on a baking tray, spoon the honey over, and place the walnut halves around the figs. Drizzle the oil lightly over the figs and walnuts. 
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove and serve on a plate dressed with the walnuts, roasting juices and bitter leaves.
