The freshness of figs can be enhanced by the aroma of balsamic vinegar and the sweetness of honey. This makes a great yogurt topping for breakfast; for a tasty snack or dessert, serve on ice cream. For a warm appetizer, it pairs nicely with blue cheese and bread or crackers. A very versatile dish that complements any meal! Be careful not to overcook the figs or balsamic honey sauce, though. Enjoy the season of fresh figs!
