Figs are among the oldest fruit known to man. They were soon recognised for their therapeutic power and thought to be sacred by the ancient Greeks. They were brought to the Americas by the Spanish missionaries, hence the now popular «Mission» fig. There are hundreds of varieties of figs, all having a common soft flesh with many tiny edible seeds, which are the real fruit of the swollen flower base fig. Figs are extremely perishable and should be eaten within a few days after having been purchased.

Before you start

When buying the prosciutto, have it sliced very thin (paper-thin), since its taste will then be at its best. Also, you will then get more slices for the same price!


Peel the figs and discard the skin (Some people just wash the figs and eat also the skin but I do not recommend it since any herbicide that may have been used would accumulate in the skin). Leave them whole and arrange them on individual plates. Arrange the prosciutto slices next to the figs.
