Vanilla Port Poached Figs with Honey Cream



Ingredients :

  • 12 fresh figs
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup honey
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups port
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 peppercorns
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon
  • zested
  • 1 orange
  • zested
  • fresh mint
  • Methods :

  • Trim a small piece from the bottom of each fig so they stand up straight. Remove stems, and score a 1/4 inch “X” into the top of each fig. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, beat whipping cream together with sour cream until stiff peaks form. (This can be done either by hand, or with an electric mixer.) Gently fold in 1/4 cup of honey and a pinch of salt. Cover, and refrigerate.
  • Pour port into a small saucepan over medium high heat. Add cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, cloves, 1 tablespoon honey, vanilla extract, balsamic vinegar, and lemon and orange zests. Stir to dissolve honey and blend flavors. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for up to 30 minutes, or as time allows, being careful not to reduce liquid too much. Place figs upright in pan, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
  • To serve, place a spoonful of honey cream in the center of each plate. Arrange 3 figs around the cream, and drizzle with a small amount of poaching liquid. Tuck a sprig of mint into the slit on the top of each fig. Serve immediately.
