Figs start arriving at the end of July each summer and continue into the fall. This is when I am again reminded how much I like fresh figs. I particularly like Black Figs with a Balsamic Reduction and Prosciutto Ham for an easy small bite served with a glass of wine.

Instructions
  1. Gather all ingredients before starting recipe.
  2. Slice figs in half, and trim the bottom by slicing a thin sliver off the bottom of each fig. This will keep the fig halves even on a platter.
  3. Squeeze 1 teaspoons full of reduced balsamic glaze in the center of each fig.
  4. Top each half with a teaspoonful of fresh ricotta cheese.
  5. Top each fig half with a half of a lice of prosciutto and allow it to just settle on the fig, do not press it down.
