I recently devised these Ibérico and fig nests for a sponsored entry on my Spanish blog. And they were a success, if I may say so, not only at home but with my readers, that's why I'm posting them here as a delicious tapa. Maybe you're still in time to catch up with the last figs of the season... Ibérico ham with figs is a match made in heaven, as simple as that.
Be sure to get yourself a premium Ibérico ham, you'll notice the difference.
To the point:
Ibérico ham and figs on potato nests
Ingredients needed per nest:
At least in Spain, to prepare the nests with straw potatoes special molds are used that look really like two small strainers, one inside the other. Well, I don't own such a gadget. Incredible, but true (Christmas is around the corner, just a hint). However, this doesn't prevent you from making the nests, as they can be baked in some small casseroles in the oven.
