I made this first at Christmas to go with a pork loin and it’s really delicious. It has a great deep, fig flavor that’s not too sweet. Make sure to use a dry red wine. If you use a sweeter-tasting red, then decrease the amount of sugar by a few TB. This is good served with pork, cheese and bread, and I bet it would be good over ice cream or pound cake.

  • 24 black mission figs diced into eights
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 2 cups water
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Step 1

Chop your figs. Finer than this, actually. They swell up.


Step 2

Put everything in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.


Step 3

Cook uncovered over low heat until thick, about 1-2 hours. Stir it occasionally. That's it. Makes about 2-2.5 cups.


Step 4

I served mine with a sharp cheddar and a dense European style bread.

Oh wow, this looks absolutely delicious.  I love finding different things to spice up cheese and crackers.  My girlfriends and I love to get together and have a glass of wine with some cheese and crackers.  This will be a great recipe to use to add something different.  Thanks for sharing!
