IMBB 8th edition – Port Wine marinated Figs with Vanilla Ice Cream

Due to vacation and some urgent work in the garden I was about to miss the 8th editionRaise Your Spirits High of the Is My Blog Burning event this time hosted by There’s a Chef in My Kitchen: Use wine or spirits as a central component of your entry.

So I had to chose something easy and fast:

Port Wine marinated figs with Vanilla Ice Cream
serves 4

8 blue figs
50 g sugar
100 ml fresh orange juice
375 ml Port wine
vanilla ice cream

The day before serving carefully peel the figs.

In a small heavy pan melt the sugar until caramelized (dark golden colour).

Pour in the orange juice (caution – mixture will bubble
vigorously!) and the Port. Bring to a boil and stir until the caramel
has dissolved.

Place the figs into the hot Port mixture then turn down the heat
and let steep for 10 minutes occasionally turning with 2 forks. Let
cool the figs in the Port.

The next day take the figs out of the Port and set aside. Bring the fluid to a boil and cook until reduced to a thick sirup.

Before serving turn the figs in the sirup and place on plates
with with vanilla ice cream. Drizzle some sirup over the ice cream.
