  • About

I have never been passionate about figs in their raw state and, yes, I have eaten them in Italy, perfectly ripe and straight off the tree. But roast them and combine with honey ice-cream and I am a happy convert Take care that the honey you use is not too herbal-some of them are so heavily scented they are more suited to the bathroom than the kitchen.

    Mise en Place

    Well ahead, make the Vanilla Ice-cream mixture as described • Melt the honey in a bowl set over boiling water until liquid • Pour all but a couple of tablespoons of the honey into the ice-cream mixture and chum in the ice-cream maker until frozen.

    About 20 minutes before serving, preheat the oven to maximum and remove the ice-cream from the freezer. It should be soft enough to scoop easily when the figs come out of the oven.
