1 (8-ounce) Camembert cheese round
1 cup ruby Port
1 cup dried Mission figs (found in raisin aisle), halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 loaf French baguette, sliced and lightly toasted
How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
Remove any paper wrapping from Camembert. Place on a small baking dish or pie plate. Bake about 15 minutes or until cheese is softened beneath the rind.
Meanwhile, bring port to a boil in a small saucepan. Add figs and simmer 5 minutes. Remove figs from pan with a slotted spoon to a small bowl. Add honey to port wine; boil 5 minutes until sauce begins to thicken. Pour liquid over figs and let sit until ready to serve.
To serve, place warm Camembert on a plate with toasted baguette slices and bowl of figs.
