Cheese-Stuffed Figs with Peppery Honey Port Syrup Recipe

Ingredients Cheese-Stuffed Figs with Peppery Honey Port Syrup

  • 2 tbsps - honey
  • 8 fresh figs
  • 8 tsps - cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup - ruby port
  • 5 black peppercorns

Directions

Step 1

In a small saucepan, heat port, honey and peppercorns over low to medium flame. Bring to a boil and continue cooking until the consistency becomes syrupy; this should take approximately 2 minutes.

Step 2

Set aside and let cool. Remove peppercorns.

Step 3

Cut the stem off each fig. Then cutting the fig crosswise, gently open them like a flower. Place a teaspoon of cream cheese in the center of each “flowered” fig and drizzle with honey port syrup.
