Glazed Figs with Raspberry Sauce

One of the fun things about Christmastime is experimenting with new recipes. This year I am going to try a few new cookie recipes instead of sticking with the same ones we've been making year after year. I am also going to try to make the table a little more elegant with a few "grown up" desserts. Dirt pudding is fun and all, but sometimes a girl just wants to feel fancy, you know? I have had this Glazed Figs with Raspberry Sauce, a Golden Blossom Honey recipe, saved since last Christmas, but I could never find fresh figs, so the recipe has sat collecting dust all year long. I just recently found out that unless you live in the region figs grow, your chances of buying any are slim to none since they are deemed too perishable to be shipped. If I hadn't heard that, this recipe would have sat for another year untouched whiled I tried to hunt them down. But, since I knew their fresh counterparts were something I was probably never going to obtain, I decided to throw caution to the wind and used dried figs instead. 


Dehydrated figs aren't the prettiest of foods, sitting there looking like a rock. So, I decided to try to rehydrate them by soaking them in hot water with a splash of rum for a few hours and it worked like a charm. They plumped right back up, ready to be plopped in the middle of the raspberry cream puree, making for one gorgeous dessert on the holiday table this year. Garnish with mint leaves and you've got yourself a red and green dessert fit for Old Saint Nick himself. I'm not saying you can't have dirt pudding or any other kiddie dessert on the menu, but push it to the back of the table because these glazed figs are going to be the star of the show this year!

  1. It does look positively decadent and the combo is divine, figs and raspberries suitable for kings! We have a fig bush in the yard but it sometimes dies, then comes back alive, but never yields fruit early enough for them to really ripen before the winter. Fresh figs are the most sinful fruit indeed, borderline pornographic if you ask me LOOOL

  2. I feel as though I have had pieces of a fresh fig, maybe in a salad or an appetizer on a vacation somewhere. I’m really not sure.

    1. Same and I really love them too, but I am so curious how a fresh fig tastes now.

    2. The same as the dried ones, just more juicy and not so overbearingly sweet. I think I've sent you some fig strudels but I'm not sure.

  8. Yes! We grew up with fig trees in our backyards. Love them! In fact, if I could get my husband to agree to wrap our tree for the Winter, I’d get one myself.

    Lol at Dez’s comment since he ruined figs for me after teaching me about the wasps!!!
