Fill your mouths with our fresh, juicy Fig Crostini. This is a very simple recipe and a snack the whole family will enjoy! This dish is inspired by one of our candle fragrances--Brown Sugar and Fig.
First, we harvested the figs from our backyard (if you don't have a fig tree, you might be able to find some fresh figs at your local supermarket around late summertime or early fall).
... and if you do try to harvest your own figs, be sure to be careful in case your parents think you're still too young to do this on your own. Don't do this without parental supervision!
Next, we cut the figs in half. Not only will this allow the ingredients and flavors to infuse properly... it looks great, too!
Then, there's the "secret sauce"...
We picked this very special Black Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar from a local food specialty shop in Florida, known as the Olive Obsession.
With all the ingredients put together on a crostini, this makes for a very fancy looking treat--and it was so easy to make! It does help to have a fig tree and a chocolate mint plant in our backyard... little did we know, figs can be quite expensive at the grocery store!
