Today's chocolate fig bon bons (from Almoharin, Spain), were carefully crafted and then individually wrapped. Each dried Mediterranean fig (higo) was filled with a creamy truffle and Brandy liquor filling, and covered in 54% cocoa chocolate. These figs arrived courtesy of Green Gecko Coffee Farm's website.
As a companion to these chocolate fig jewels, I picked a Meyer lemon from my yard, and made some candied Meyer lemon slices -- which I dipped in dark chocolate with a touch of butter.
The figs were the star of the show, but they paired nicely with the candied and cooked lemon flavors.
These butters included: 1.) Traditional English Lemon Curd (London) topped with lemon peel; 2.) Liliko'i (passion fruit) Butter (from Happy Honu Farm, Hawaii) topped with thin slices of kumquat; and 3.) Coconut Butter (Honomu Jams, Hawaii) topped with fresh, green lemon mint leaves.
