Carmelized Figs with Port - Balsamic glaze

Submitted by: COPEKAT

Introduction

Figs are, in my opinion, an under appreciated fruit. I ADORE them and this is a low calorie, luxurious dessert that comes together in minutes and is fancy enough for a formal dinner party. Using aged, imported balsamic vinegar improves the final results even more!

And no, the black pepper is not a mistake.

This sauce is also good over fresh strawberries, grilled pineapple or peaches. Excellent with creme fraiche or low cal frozen yogurt.
