Prosciutto stuffed figs with honey goat cheese are an irresistible appetizer to pair with JaM Cellars wine for your next get together! This simple, flavorful end of season snack pairs perfectly with their smooth Cabernet!
The end of August is here and we are now looking at all that September brings us. Despite the heat, it will soon be time for sweaters, scarves, and our favorite seasonal lattes. I love autumn, but I also appreciate summer so Labor Day usually ends up being one of my favorite ways to say goodbye to the season.
But by the end of summer, I am usually not up to anything super elaborate. Instead, our Labor Day parties are more relaxed and casual. I like to do something simple in the way of food and pair it with a nice relaxing wine that satisfies everyone’s tastes.
I usually make a few hors d’oeuvres, maybe a nice easy dessert, and that is it. Usually, we like to focus more on spending time together and laughing over a few bottles of wine. I’ve been not so subtly obsessing over JaM Cabernet wine. It is so smooth, a little sweet, and pairs with oh, I don’t know…. everything. It is made by second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele. (They are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars in case you were wondering!) Besides their Cab, they also make Butter Chardonnay and Toast Sparkling.
What’s important is being able to have something that is easy to drink and can please a crowd without breaking the bank. JaM Cab does just that for me. A glass of red while popping one of these prosciutto stuffed figs… there is no other way I’d like to spend my Labor Day – or any end of summer party. You can get more end of summer relaxing ideas here.
Oh, and if it’s not obvious, this recipe for prosciutto stuffed figs can and should be double, tripled, quadrupled, whatever, so that you have enough to feed everyone going to your next get together! Don’t forget to find JaM Cellars wine at your local store here.
