Poached fresh figs in marsala

all details

So much symbolism, so much history. So many sexual connotations, too. Of course I'm talking about the fig - that wonderful, sensuous late summer fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups marsala or red wine
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 vanilla bean, split in half
  • 2 sprigs fresh lemon thyme
  • 8 fresh black figs, halved

Method

In a stainless steel pot, simmer the marsala with the orange juice, zest, honey, vanilla bean and thyme on a medium heat for five minutes. Remove from the stove and pour over the fig halves.

Allow to cool and marinate in the liquid at room temperature.

Serve the figs in a shallow bowl by layering a slice of toasted panettone with fig halves, some syrup and a dollop of mascarpone or yoghurt.

To serveĀ 

Serve with toasted panettone or crunchy biscotti, dollops of mascarpone, icecream or natural yoghurt.
