Figs with Prosciutto

We went to Eastern Market in Detroit area last weekend again.  Guess what I found? Fresh figs! There were two kinds of fresh figs on the market.  One was kind of yellowish; the other one is deep dark purple.  The vendor told us the purple one is better but a little bit more expensive. 

We bought the dark purple figs.  And the vendor was right.  They are so juicy and sweet and fragrant that I literally couldn’t stop eating them.  O(∩_∩)O~ 

I bought some prosciutto later and made a beautiful appetizer with figs and prosciutto. 


8 to 10 fresh figs
8 to 10 slices of prosciutto
shaved Parmesan cheese
fresh rosemary


Split each slices of prosciutto into halves lengthwise. 

Rinse the figs under running water and pat dry.  Cut them into halves. 

Wrap each piece of figs with half slice of prosciutto.  Secure with fresh rosemary. Sprinkle with shaved parmesan cheese.

Don’t forget to remove the rosemary before eating.

All you need now is a glass of wine! 

If you are not that into cheese, just skip the shaved Parmesan. 

Or you can just put the figs and prosciutto on the plate side by side.
