PlacerGrown ingredients used: Figs Oranges (Blood and Navel)
12 fresh Black Mission figs trimmed
1/4 cup soft goat cheese
1/4 cup pistachios — finely chopped
1/2 cup orange marmalade
Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut a 1 1/2 inch deep “X” in the top of each fig and squeeze the sides gently to open up the top. Arrange the figs on a baking sheet, standing with cut ends up. Spoon one teaspoon goat cheese into each fig, mounding the cheese slightly. Press one teaspoon chopped pistachio onto the cheese. Warm the marmalade in a saucepan until it becomes liquid and drizzle over the figs. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until warm throughout. Transfer to a platter, and serve. Serves 6.
