WARM BAKED FIGS WITH PERNOD, CANDIED WALNUTS & ANNABELLA YOGURT Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 20 Minutes Yield: 4 Servings
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup Pernod or Aguardiente
  • 1 Dozen Black Mission Figs, stemmed & halved
  • 1 Tablespoon & 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 cups Annabella Plain Yogurt
  • 1/3 cup Candied Walnuts, Coarsely-Crumbled
Recipe Instructions
  1. Preheat an oven to 425 F.
    Choose a baking dish just large enough to hold the halved figs in one layer.
    Pour the 1/2 cup of Pernod into the baking dish.
    Place the figs in the dish, skin side down.
    Sprinkle the surface of the figs with the sugar.
    Bake for 10 minutes, then baste them with the juices and return them to the oven until the figs soften completely and the juices are reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 10 minutes longer.
    Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
    Divide the yogurt among 4 compote dishes.
    Place the warm baked figs on top, dividing them equally.
    Spoon the dark, syrupy juices over the figs.
    Top with the crumbled candied walnuts.
    Serve immediately.

If you stop the roasting while the softened tomato halves still hold their shape, they will make a juicy topping perfectly sized to fit baguette toasts. A schmear of tangy yogurt cheese under the tomato balances the sweetness.

With its toasted Indian seasonings, this soup fills the kitchen with lusty fragrance. It reheats well, so you can cart it to a potluck or take some to a sick friend. For a perfect winter dinner, accompany with a crunchy green salad—maybe escarole with sliced fennel and radishesand open a favorite beer. You can make the soup with green split peas, but I think yellow ones have a finer flavor, and the saffron-yellow soup looks especially appetizing with yogurt drizzled on top.

No blueberries compare to wild Oregon blueberries, no hazelnuts to Oregon hazelnuts, no maple syrup to the burnt-amber maple syrup from Oregon. These firm opinions come from my husband, who was largely raised in—you guessed it—Oregon.
