Fig Spread
  • 1 pound fresh figs, stemmed and chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  1. Place chopped figs in medium saucepan and add water. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until figs are broken down. About 10 minutes.
  2. Cool slightly, then puree the mixture {using an immersion or regular blender}, then return to saucepan.
  3. Add vinegar, honey and salt. Cook mixture on low, stirring frequently, for an additional 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Fresh figs are naturally sweet, so they don't need additional sugar. You can omit the honey altogether if you like - or add more if you want your spread thicker.
