Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Figs

Moral of story, just because you fall in love with some kind of food does not mean you have to get the plant that produces it. Let me tell you why. We made these last week, they are amazing. I couldn't stop eating them. Next day boyfriend is at the local nursery and sees fig trees on sale for $10 from $40. He mentions it and I'm like Heck yea! We went back and bought a tree that already had ripe figs on it. We kept picking them off and just eating them before we even made it to the car. Next day we go to plant it and we're (by we I mean boyfriend) digging the hole, then all of a sudden a wire severed in half appears. He says uh oh, go check and see if the cable's working. Guess what? It wasn't. Thank God for books because it could have been a really boring evening. And thank God that I actually want to read over watching TV.

Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Figs
Yield ~12

12 figs
24 almonds
~6 large slices prosciutto

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Push 2 almonds into the fig from the bottom as shown in the picture below. Then wrap the whole fig in half a piece of prosciutto, just enough to cover it entirely. Lightly grease a baking dish (spray oil) and place the figs in. Bake for 20 minutes or until prosciutto is crispy. Once you take them out drizzle them with honey and serve.
