Hi kadesma,
I take it that you intend to serve the figs studded with mascarpone, a walnut and then dipped in chocolate. UMMM, interesting and difficult to do! Clearly, this is not an appetiser so you will be serving them as a dessert or with coffee - but never with tea.

Makes me hungry for fresh figs! I grew up with two huge fig trees. Had to have a ladder to reach the top. They both passed away many years ago. I miss the fig preserves, fig conserve, strawberry figs, and figs and cream!! I would hate to know what a water bucket of figs would cost...if you could find them!.....No appy ideas yet Miss CJ.

NO not studded with the mascarpone, I intend to slice the fig from top to bottom leaving one side intact then stuff it with the mascarpone and ealnut, pinch it back together then dip in chocolate..Will serve with some sparkling wine...If it were in the evening then maybe coffee but this is a pig out for the 4th.

I did twp UB,
My grand parents both sets had two trees each so figs were always around. We have one at the end of the pasture here, but getting to it depends on where the bulls are and how fast you can run carrying a bucket
