Roasted Figs

We came home from Sicily to a loaded fig tree in the back yard, so these divine balsamic figs with honey were begging to be made. I brought a nice big jar of wild Sicilian honey, and this was just the perfect occasion to dive into it.

Pure magic takes place in one pan, everything tossed together and then roasted for about 25 minutes. Once everything mingles together you’ll end up with layers of flavors peeking through at every bite.

All the sweetness from the honey and the figs is perfectly brightened up with notes of lemon and an exotic vanilla undertone.

I even serve these figs as appetizer on mini pizzas with goat cheese and caramelized onions. Sweet and salty never tasted this good.

I’ll save the rest to make a good home-made jam, I might even use this recipe as a base because it is the best ever you guys, no kidding. Hope you try them Pronto!

  • Preheat your oven to 400”F

  • Use the butter to coat a large roasting tray all over.

  • Rinse the figs well and cut off the stem. Slice them in half lengthwise and add them to the buttered roasting tray.

  • Sprinkle the coconut sugar all over the top, together with the vanilla extract, balsamic vinegar and honey. Squeeze the lemon all over and give everything a gentle toss to coat. Try to arrange the figs cut side down if possible in one single layer.

  • Roast the balsamic coated figs in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, until caramelized to your liking and the balsamic honey sauce has reduced to a syrupy consistency.

  • Serve on pizza with goat cheese, ricotta or as a dessert sauce.


If you happen to forget about the figs in the oven and the sauce reduces a little bit too much, just hit the pan with a good squeeze of lemon juice to deglaze it.

    this is wonderful – thanks so much for the recipe! can I make a lot and freeze it?


    1. I don’t think this would work as frozen but If you try it and have success with it please report back 🙂


  2. Hi. Since figs aren’t in season now (May), can I use Sun Maid’s dried mission figs to make this?


    1. Those won’t work Kathy, wait to make this when you find fresh figs.


  3. I’m not sure when or how to add the basil and lemon strips.


    1. You garnish with the basil but you add the lemon to the pan with everything!

    These figs are most definitely the best I’ve ever tried. I have a new found apprection for fresh figs now that I know how to make them shine. Had them on toast with ricotta and extra honey.

    You have a fig tree in your year? Now I am jealous, I am such a huge fig fan! I love them roasted with vanilla beans, honey and topped with mint sugar. Your balsamic version is mouth watering! Pinning!


    1. I do but the squirrels got the best of it this year. With the drought in California they just ripened all at the same time and then they were gone. But I got mines 😉
