French Food Friday...Figues farcies à la mousse de jambon

recipe and photo from here

Bonjour mes belles,

I have been promised some fresh figs from a friend who advises that she has a surplus so I am planning to use some of them with this recipe and if there is any left over, French Boyfriend is going to make some fig jam.

Figues farcies à la mousse de jambon

You’ll need :
  • 8 medium figs just ripe
  • 60g Fromage blanc (or cream cheese)
  • 100g jambon de parma
  • 1dl (2/5 cup) heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp honey vinegar (or mild vinegar and a touch of honey)
  • Ground pepper
Wash and dry the figs, slice in cross at top (see photo), then set aside.  Grind ham and mix in a bowl with fromage blanc and vinegar. Whip the cream until firm then incorporate into ham mix. Fill each fig from top with spoonful of mouse. Chill until ready to serve.

très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x


  1. Hi Leeann, Will FBF teach me to make fig jam when we are there visiting? This would require you to save a few figs for me, ha-ha?!
    See you soon, Lisa
