Warm Spicy Honey & Bacon Figs

Makes 12 

5 Fresh Figs, Cut in half with stem
12 One inch pieces of Bacon (2 to 3 slices of bacon)
3 Tablespoon Honey
2 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
Salt for garnish

Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces, then cook over medium heat until crispy, about 5 to 8 minutes.  Set aside on a paper towel.

Leave 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the pan and set aside the remaining.  Add the honey, vinegar and red chili flakes.  Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes until combined.

Place each fig cut side down and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat.  

Place each fig onto a pretty plate cooked side up.  Add a slice of cooked bacon on top of each fig. Drizzle the honey vinegar syrup over the figs and sprinkle a bit a salt on each.  Add additional red chili flakes if you like it spicier.
