|Summer Berries and Figs|
Now that it is fig season, I just had to make my favorite summer fig dessert. As Janet Hazen in her little book, Basil says The flavor of basil paired with fresh figs and summer berries in this unique dessert is sure to leave a lasting impression on you and your dining companions. This was first served to us many years ago by a dear friend who also recommend Hazen's little book, I hurried right out to find the book, and I've been using it for many years for unique recipes using basil including this recipe.
This recipe makes from 4 to 6 servings.

Strain the Honey-Basil Cream to remove the basil. You really just want the flavor of the basil in the Cream.
Serve in individual dishes topped with the warm Cream and garnished with a sprig of basil.
