Fig Toasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Goat Cheese

We've all heard the story of Eve tempting Adam with an apple in the garden of Eden, but there is a version that says it was a fig she offered him.  After tasting a bite of these fig toasts you may agree these are worthy enough to tempt even the strongest of willpowers.     
Really....... so good, so easy and so pretty to look at.       
  Fig Toasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Goat Cheese


12 fresh ripe black mission figs
6-8 oz  goat cheese
1 cup 18 year Joe and Son's Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp honey
2 tsp brown sugar
Baquette slices -  sliced 1/4" thick (48 slices)
 1/4 cup Joe and Son's Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil


     Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush slices of bread with olive oil and toast in oven until crisp.

     Remove stems and slice the figs vertically into quarters.

     Combine balsamic vinegar, honey, and brown sugar in a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil and reduce until thick enough to coat a spoon well. Keep warm.

Spread warm toasts thickly with goat cheese. Place figs on cheese. Drizzle with balsamic-honey reduction. Serve immediately.
