Method

Preheat the oven to 180°c (360 F).
In a large bowl whisk  ricotta, milk, eggs, maple or corn syrup and vanilla until they become smooth and creamy.
Ricotta is a bit grainy but is ok . But whisk until the lumps are gone.
Divide the mixture  between four ramekins, resting on a baking tray. Drop some piece of fig or other fruits onto each little custard and pop in the oven.
Cook these custards for about 15 minutes or until they have puffed up and browned nicely. You can keep them in or turn on the grill for a bit of colour. Serve warm or cold.

  10. Gloria, I've never had a fig ricotta custard but it sounds great. We'd have to find fresh figs for it. We do keep a big bag of dried figs in the house to snack on though. As for Cream of Asparagus soup, it's one of our favorites! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
