Fresh Fig Tart with Lavender Honey
Fresh Fig Tart with Lavender Honey ~ this crisp galette with a jammy fig filling can go anywhere from breakfast and brunch to dessert. The homemade lavender infused honey is worth the price of admission.
And can we just talk a minute about the lavender honey? If you think you wouldn’t like it, keep an open mind…I was once a nay-sayer when it came to lavender as a flavor, but I’ve been won over…it adds just the merest hint of earthy floral to this fig tart. Leave it out if you must, but I encourage you to give it a try.
