Ingredients

For the quick fig jam (see notes)

  • 2 Ripe figs
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Water

For the crostini

  • 16 Freshly cut slices white baguette bread
  • 8 Thin slices Prosciutto ham
  • 200 g/ 7 oz Gorgonzola cheese
  • 16 Cocktail picks

Instructions

Make the fig jam (see notes)

  • Slices each fig into 8 wedges and then cut each wedge in half
  • Put the honey and water into a small saucepan, add the fig and heat until the mixture begins to boil
  • Allow to boil, stirring frequently until the liquid has mostly evapourated and you are left with a thick jammy consistency. This should take around 3 minutes
  • Transfer to a small bowl and let cool while you prepare the crostini

Assemble the crostini

  • Cut each slice of ham down the middle (lengthways), roll up each length and thread onto a cocktail pick
  • Divide the gorgonzola between the bread slices and spread with a blunt knife
  • Top with a roll of ham, pushing the cocktail pick through the centre of the crostini
  • Grind a little black pepper onto the top of the crostini
  • Serve immediately

Notes

1. If you don't want to make the jam chop each fig into 8 slices and lay a slice on top of the gorgonzola, then drizzle with a small amount of honey. Top with the prosciutto roll and serve immediately.
