Dried figs wrapped in prosciutto

If you love to entertain - here is a great idea for canapés:

Dried figs wrapped in prosciutto (makes 20)

1 cup water

  • 3 oranges, juiced
  • 375g packet Dried Figs
  • 10 baby bocconcini, halved
  • 20 slices prosciutto
  • olive oil cooking spray
    Bring water and juice to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

    Reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes.

    Add figs. Simmer for 10 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool. 

  • Drain figs. Pat-dry  with paper towels.

    Place 1 piece of bocconcini onto each fig. Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each fig, securing with a toothpick. Spray with oil.

    Preheat a barbecue plate or frying pan on medium.
  • Cook figs for 3 to 4 minutes each side, or until light golden.

    Transfer to a plate and serve.
