Super Dense Cheesy Figgy Tomatoes
Super dense is not a commentary on anyone’s intellectual capabilities but it is an appropriate description of this concentrated fig balsamic vinegar.
• Slice fresh tomatoes
• Crumble goat cheese liberally*
• Top with a few dried figs
• Drizzle the balsamic
• Salt to taste, preferably Real Salt
I dried all of these as the first experiment with my new dehydrator. I was looking for any excuse to stop eating them fresh before I turned into the fig version of the unforgettable “have another cherry” scene from Witches of Eastwick.
If your neighbors with a brown turkey fig tree aren’t as generous as mine you could always substitute dried black mission figs from Trader Joe’s. Or move.
*This is not a time to be a conservative… is there ever?
