Honey Roasted Figs

Total time 30 mins
Yield Makes about 1 1/2 cups (serving size: 1 fig (2 halves))
Anne Walker and Sam Mogannam, the couple behind Bi-Rite Creamery and Bi-Rite Market, pick the figs from a tree in their garden, drizzle them with honey from their hives, and roast them in their outdoor wood-burning oven. They're delicious over honey or vanilla ice cream. 


  • 15 ripe figs, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup light honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon, for sprinkling
