    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.

      Reduce heat and simmer slowly until reduced by half.
    3. 3
      Set aside and cool to room temperature, the syrup will thicken upon standing.
