DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring the port and honey up to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer slowly until reduced by half.
  • Set aside and cool to room temperature, the syrup will thicken upon standing.
  • Cut the goat cheese into 8 equal pieces, about 2 teaspoon each and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Place the figs upright and carefully make four cross cuts, slicing each fig into eight sections, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
  • Gently separate the figs outward to form a "flower"
  • Place a ball of goat cheese in the center of each fig and drizzle with the port syrup.
  • Garnish with walnuts.
