19 fresh ripe small figs (about 1 & 1/4 lbs)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped

On plate, with a fork, mash the ripest fig w/ honey; set aside.

With a sharp knife, trim stems from remaining figs, then cut a deep X in the top of each, making sure not to cut all the way through to the bottom. With fingertips, gently spread each fig apart to make "petals".

In small bowl, combine ricotta and almonds. With back of spoon, press mashed fig and honey mixture through a sieve into 1 cup measure.

To serve, spoon ricotta mixture into figs, Arrange figs on platter. Drizzle with fig honey.
