Sticky Cinnamon Figs


This recipe showcases Ceylon Cinnamon Quills. Serves 4.


8 ripe figs
large knob of butter
4 tbsp. clear honey
handful shelled pistachio nuts or almonds
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Mascarpone or Greek yogurt, to serve


Heat grill to medium high.

Cut a deep cross in the top of each fig then ease the top apart like a flower.

Sit the figs in a baking dish and drop a small piece of the butter into the centre of each fruit.

Drizzle the honey over the figs, then sprinkle with the nuts and spice.

Grill for 5 mins until figs are softened and the honey and butter make a sticky sauce in the bottom of the dish.

Serve warm, with dollops of mascarpone or yogurt.

This recipe also works with pears or peaches.
