Yesterday on my snow day, I knew I had enough staples for a good snack by the fireplace. An old baguette, some goat cheese, dried figs and wine (duh). Nothing beats a quick crostini, a toasty fire and a dog at your feet. Snow is coming again this week – stock up!
Fig and Red Wine Reduction on Crostini
- 1 cup dried mission figs, chopped
- 1 cup, red wine
- 1 tablespoon, brown sugar
- 1 sprig, fresh rosemary
- fig and honey Goat Lady Dairy cheese
- bread, olive oil, salt and pepper
In a small sauce pan, combine chopped figs, wine, brown sugar and rosemary. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced. Make sure you keep an eye on this – don’t burn any sugar! Meanwhile, toast slices of french brea with a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper. Once the bread is brown, smear with goat cheese and top with fig reduction!
