This is a staple Christmas/New Year canape at my parents house. I think it is a Nigella Lawson recipe and is easy and requires no cooking, and the ingredients can be bought in most supermarkets, in case anyone is trying to throw together a last minute New Years Eve party. This makes 3 large dinner platefuls, so scale up or down accordingly.
- 320G parma ham slices
- 250g dried figs
- 200g soft rindless goats cheese
- Chop each parma ham slice into 2 or 3 pieces, depending on size, so you should have pieces around the size of a credit card.
- Place 1/2 a teaspoon of goats cheese, and 1/8 piece of fig on each.
- Fold the ham around the fig and goats cheese to make a parcel.
