This was for a day when I felt like having an alcoholic dinner. Because those liquor soaked figs are potent!
Limoncello Fig Toast
1 jar Limoncello Figs
1/2 loaf french baguette
2 cups arugula
1 tbsp Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
ricotta, or chream cheese
flaky sea salt
Turn on your broiler. Slice the baguette into thin slices. Brush the olive oil over the slices and pop them under the broiler for about 2-5 minutes. They should be browning, but not too toasted. Keep an eye on them.
Meanwhile, slice some of the figs and saute them in a pan over medium heat. Toss in the arugula and a little of the juice from the jar. Stir around until the arugula is wilted down.
Spread some of the cheese on your toasts, the amount is up to you. I only gave it a thin layer of Ricotta. Top off with some figs and arugula and a sprinkle of salt. Serve for dinner or as a great appetizer.
The figs are available only in the store or by phone right now. We have Grappa, Cedro, Rhum and the Limoncello.
