Figs with honey-lavender creme fraise

Figs with lavender-honey creme fraise


  • 4 figs; halved
  • 200 ml container of creme fraise (about a cup)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon food grade lavender
  • Handful of hazelnuts (optional)


  • Place the creme fraise, 2 tablespoon of the honey and the lavender in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until almost boiling. Turn the heat right down and let the lavender infused for about 20 minutes or so. Let cool slightly and refrigerate until ready to use. Once ready put the mixture through a sieve to remove the lavender. To roast the hazelnuts put them in a frying pan over medium heat (moving them around often) until the skins are blackened and starting to come away from the nut. Put the nuts into a clean tea towel and rub the skins off. Then roughly chop
  • For the figs, heat remaining honey in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook figs, cut sides down, until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Serve with the creme fraise and garnish with hazelnuts and an extra drizzle of honey - if you like


Serves two - two figs per person. The figs I bought however were huge so one each did us quite nicely
I had nut on my serve but I left them off for H
