  • Summary

    Fig trees love warmer climates. However, for the adventurous northern gardener, the best way to grow figs is in a container that can be placed outdoors in warm weather and then brought indoors to winter. The best variety of fig tree for a container is the Petite Negri fig. It's a small- to medium-sized black fruit with sweet, red flesh. If you have great weather, Mission figs are superb. The natural sweetness of figs goes well with pork tenderloin in this dish. If you like, use sturdy fresh rosemary branches (as from the Tuscan variety) for the skewers.

    Ingredients

    • One (1 to 1 1/4 pounds) pork tenderloin or center-cut pork filet
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Fine kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 4 long rosemary branches or wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 15 minutes
    • 12 small ripe figs
    • 4 ounces goat cheese
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
