Grilled Figs With Ricotta & Thyme Honey


6 figs, quartered but still whole 

Tiny dots of unsalted butter 

1 tbsp of thyme honey 

2 slices of ricotta 


Preheat the grill. Wash the figs and carefully cut them open – score them twice. Dot each one with a mini amount of butter and do the same with the honey – just a quick drizzle on each one, not a monsoon cloud. Put on a baking tray/cookie sheet under a searing grill for two minutes. Serve with a slice of ricotta, draped with another dignified slip of honey.
