Greek Yogurt with Figs + Caramel
While I was in Florida last month, my Grandmother gave me a huge carton of figs to take home. So many figs! I started looking up recipes for fig preserves right away since I knew that I wouldn't be able to eat them all before they spoiled. During my search, I found a decent preserves recipe and also came across this one for figs with Greek yogurt from The Newlywed Cookbook. Out of the three fig recipes that I tried that week, this was the only one that really complemented the fruit. Not to mention that the cold yogurt mixed with the fresh figs and buttery caramel was divine. The recipe is posted below, both for your enjoyment and (mostly) mine.
Greek Yogurt with Figs + Caramel via The Newlywed Cookbook
Ingredients: 1/3 cup packed brown sugar // 2 tbsp water // 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter // 2 cups Greek yogurt // 8 fresh figs, halved
"Combine the brown sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves completely and begins to melt into a think sauce, about 8 minutes. Decrease the heat and whisk in the cold butter til it reaches the consistency of melted caramels. Remove from heat and spoon warm caramel over swirls of Greek yogurt and fresh figs."
Yesterday, a girl at work brought in a few figs from her garden for everyone. Guess what I'm going to make with mine? :)
