Calories 480 kcal

Ingredients

Dried Fig Jam

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 15-20 Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Dried Figs, stemmed
  • 2 star anise

Rhubarb Glaze

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Pop Tarts

  • 2 sheets pastry dough

Instructions

Make the California Dried Fig Jam

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the water, honey, lemon juice, vanilla and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Add dried figs and anise, and simmer until jammy, 25 to 30 minutes.

  2. Remove the fig mixture from the heat and cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to refrigerator to cool completely.

Make the Rhubarb Glaze

  1. While the figs are cooking, make the rhubarb syrup for the icing. In another small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water, rhubarb, and honey. Simmer until the rhubarb turns to mush, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool. Carefully strain and discard rhubarb pieces. Set rhubarb syrup aside.

Make the Fig Pop Tarts

  1. Heat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Lay both pieces of pastry dough on a work surface. Roll the circles to 11 inches across. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the edges off (about 1 inch off all sides) to create two 9-inch squares. Then cut each square into three 3-inch strips.

  3. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cooled jam on one end of each strip. Fold one end over the end with jam. Use a fork to crimp the edges on all sides. Repeat with remaining dough strips. Transfer the hand pies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven and cool them completely.

  5. Finish making the glaze: Whisk powdered sugar with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the rhubarb syrup until it creates an icing glaze. Spoon over the top of each fig pop tart and let harden. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with California Figs

There’s a lot to love about ricotta pancakes. They’re the kind of breakfast for lazy mornings, for brunch, or even during the holidays if you’re not slinging  Overnight French Toast Casserole. By beating the egg whites until they’re stiff peaks, they add height to the pancakes. What we think you’ll really love about this lemon ricotta pancake recipe is the lemon-infused Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs. Each bite is a burst of tangy sweetness. You could always serve these pancakes with butter and maple syrup, but we like them best with confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.
Ricotta pancakes are light, fluffy and perfect for breakfast--this lemon ricotta pancake recipe is great for celebratory breakfasts and brunches.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with California Figs

Course Breakfast
Servings 8 pancakes / 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (1 lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid Mission California Figs, stemmed and finely chopped
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat the lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey over medium heat for 1 minute Stir together. Pour over the figs in a bowl and toss. Steep for 10 minutes.

  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yolks, sugar, and ricotta. Stir in the milk and lemon honey-infused figs.

  4. Beat the egg whites until you achieve stiff peaks.

  5. Stir together the figgy yolk mixture into the flour until just combined. Fold in the egg whites until combined.

  6. Set a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once a drip of water sizzles in the skillet, it’s ready. Turn the heat down to medium low. Brush a little butter onto the surface of the skillet (and as needed as you’re cooking the pancakes). Portion out 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet and smooth into a circle. Cook for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. You’ll know it’s ready to flip when a spatula can easily lift a corner of the pancake, bubbles have pricked the surface of the pancake, and the side of the pancake is no longer glossy.

Preserved Lemon Chicken with Almonds and Figs

Preserved Lemon Chicken with California Figs and Almonds is a perfectly delicious main dish for Passover.

This Sephardic-inspired dish is one of our favorite chicken recipes for Passover Seders. With preserved lemon, a hint of sweetness from Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs, and warm spices of cinnamon and allspice, this dish of chicken with almonds is great the rest of the year too. Serve with quinoa or mashed potatoes to soak up the fragrant sauce.

One of the first fruits to be cultivated by people, figs are as meaningful and symbolic as they are sweet and delicious. Jews consider figs to be particularly holy because they were one of the seven staple foods, known as the Seven Species, eaten by Jews in the land of Israel during Biblical times.

Preserved Lemon Chicken with Almonds & Figs

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 whole cut-up chicken, about 4 pounds
  • 3 shallots, peeled, halved, and thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon diced preserved lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounces Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Mission Figs
  • 5 sprigs thyme plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Pat dry the chicken pieces and season well with salt and pepper.

  2. Place the chicken pieces skin-side down in the skillet and cook until the skin is golden brown, about ten minutes. Turn and brown the other side.

  3. Remove chicken to a plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat in the pan.

  4. Add the shallots, garlic and preserved lemon to the pan and sauté over medium heat until softened, about five minutes.

  5. Add the cinnamon and allspice and sauté a few additional minutes until fragrant.

  6. Add the chicken broth to the pan and, using a wooden spoon, scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet.

  7. Return the chicken pieces to the pan, arranging them in a single layer. Add the figs and thyme and raise the heat to high.

  8. Bring the liquid to a boil, then cover the skillet and turn heat down to low. Simmer until chicken is cooked through and registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer, about 20 minutes.

  9. While the chicken is cooking, toast the almonds in a dry skillet for a few minutes until golden and fragrant - watch carefully so that they don't burn.

  10. To serve, arrange the chicken and figs on a platter. Spoon sauce over chicken and top with toasted almonds. Garnish with a few additional sprigs of thyme if desired.

Recipe Notes

Note: A staple of Middle Eastern cooking, preserved lemons add a unique pickled tanginess to North African-inspired dishes such as this one. You can find jars of preserved lemons in good grocery stores or Middle Eastern markets or make your own. If you are not able to source preserved lemons, you can substitute cooked fresh lemon. Combine one thinly sliced lemon with a half cup of fresh lemon juice and two teaspoons of kosher salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the salt, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until lemon slices are tender, about ten minutes. Cool and chop.

Spinach, Brie Grilled Cheese with Figs

Get your greens in with this spinach Brie grilled cheese.

Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese? Something about this cheese sandwich makes us want to melt. But, have you ever tried a Brie grilled cheese? This is a delightful way to dress up a familiar sandwich and the addition of spinach is a great way to get your greens in. We have a hunch that one taste of this spinach grilled cheese with Brie and our Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs will make this a new family favorite.

Spinach, Brie Grilled Cheese with Figs


Course Main Course
Servings 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, sliced
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups baby spinach, rinsed and drained
  • 8 slices sourdough or boule bread
  • 8 ounces Brie cheese (more or less to taste)
  • 1 cup Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Mission Figs, stemmed and thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, melt 1/4 tablespoon butter. Add onions and salt, and cook over low heat for 7-10 minutes. Remove onions and set aside.

  2. In same skillet, melt 1/4 tablespoon butter. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add spinach and stir until wilted.

  3. ONIONS OPTION: You can skip cooking the onions separately. If so, then DICE the onions, and add them to the skillet 2-3 minutes before adding the garlic.

  4. Lay 4 slices of bread on a flat surface. Spread cheese equally across all 4 slices of bread. Top with figs and then spinach mixture, all spread equally across bread slices. Cover each with top slice of bread, and butter the outside of the top slices.

  5. Turn on heat to medium. When skillet is warm, add sandwiches, buttered side down.

  6. Place another clean skillet on top of sandwiches, and press down. You should hear a little bit of sizzle. Toast bread for 3 minutes. Remove top skillet, and butter the bread. Carefully flip sandwiches over, and replace the clean skillet on top. Toast for another 3 1/2 minutes.

  7. Remove sandwiches and repeat with remaining sandwiches. Slice sandwiches in half, and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

NOTE ON CHEESE: I use 2 ounces of cheese per sandwiches. Of course, you can use more or less, to taste. With 2 ounces you won't get the dripping, melty cheese, but the cheese still melts beautifully into the sandwich.
