Fig & Honey Infused Goat Cheese Bites

I found the last vestige of figs at the farmer’s market this
past weekend.
  I could not believe my
luck and the farmer was actually shocked that she squeezed out one more lot of
these divine figs.  This is the only
place I can find these luscious and brightly colored figs. The flavor is
amazing along with the vibrant pink tones of the insides.  I knew that I had to pay homage to the
almighty fig.

Some natural pairings with the fig in my house are honey and
reduced balsamic vinegar.  I thought why
not create a fancy little bite that incorporated both.  The tanginess of the goat cheese along with
the sweetness of the honey and reduced balsamic is a perfect pairing.  Now just add a glass of sparkling goodness
and you have the making of a great kick off appetizer for the weekend or as
like to call them – Friday Night Bites!

I so wish that figs were a year round fruit, but to my
dismay, it is a limited offering.  I was
going to make more of my Balsamic Fig Jam but I realized that I still have
close to 40 jars I canned last year. 
Next year, I will can like crazy.
