1/1 Photo of Figs With Goat Cheese and Port Syrup
mary winecoff's Note:
My father loves figs. He actually grows them in his backyard and when he "lets" me have some I will make this as a dessert. I happen to love goat cheese and between the two of us, we both love port. Everyone seems satisfied at the end.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring the port and honey up to a boil.
- 2Reduce heat and simmer slowly until reduced by half.
- 3Set aside and cool to room temperature, the syrup will thicken upon standing.
- 4Cut the goat cheese into 8 equal pieces, about 2 teaspoon each and roll each piece into a ball.
- 5Place the figs upright and carefully make four cross cuts, slicing each fig into eight sections, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
- 6Gently separate the figs outward to form a "flower"
- 7Place a ball of goat cheese in the center of each fig and drizzle with the port syrup.
