Baked Fig Ball from Dolci Pensieri di Calabria
Calabrian Figs Wrapped in Fig Leaves
With its fun shape, incredible aroma and deep, earthy flavor, this pallone di fichi—crafted by family-owned Dolci Pensieri di Calabria—will captivate everyone at your holiday table or on your gift list. After brief poaching in a secret syrup, luscious Calabrian figs are packed by hand into a ball, carefully wrapped in tender fig leaves and baked in a low oven. As they dry, the leaves perfume the figs within, resulting in complex scents and concentrated flavors.
Slice into the fig ball with a sharp knife and breathe in its wonderful smoky-sweet fragrance. Serve on a cheese plate with a variety of Italian cheeses such as La Tur, fresh pecorino and Gorgonzola Dolcelatte. Dolci Pensieri di Calabria pallone di fichi's intense liquorice and caramel notes are also an excellent accompaniment for robust red wines at dessert.
