Balsamic & Fig Glaze

Balsamic & Fig Glaze

This sweet and savoury glaze is perfect for holiday hams or serve as a sauce for roast lamb, pork or duck. If you can't find fresh figs, substitute with 1/2 cup dried figs that have been stemmed and then purée the glaze before using.


INGREDIENTS

1 cup chopped fresh figs, stems removed
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
1 cup white wine
1 cup water
1/3 to 1/2 cup honey


PREPARATION

Add figs, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, white wine, water and 1/3 cup honey to saucepan. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally until mixture thickens, about 20 to 30 minutes. Taste and adjust for sweetness, adding more honey, if needed.



Yield: About 2 cups.
