Honey Fried Figs with Honey Cinnamon Yogurt

On the weekend I bought a box of figs. As it turns out, they're not as tasty as I'd hoped they would be. But I didn't want to throw them out so I had to find a way to make them more flavourful. Frying them in honey and butter is a delicious way to do that! You could also serve these figs with ice cream.



I used the good honey this time, not the one from the farm. This one tastes even better.



Ingredients
6 figs, cut in half
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon honey
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions
In a small nonstick pan, melt the butter and 1 tablespoon of honey over medium high heat. Once it starts bubbling, place the figs in the pan cut side down. Let them cook away for 3 or 4 minutes, swirling the pan a few times.

In the meantime, mix the yogurt with remaining honey and cinnamon.

Remove the figs from the pan and drizzle any remaining honey sauce over them. Serve with the yogurt. And don't forget to lick the plate!

I got the idea to fry the figs from About.com.
