CANDIED FIGS WITH VANILLA ICE CREAM
Alliance food - wine:
The white sparkling wine DUC DE RAYBAUD CHARDONNAY is an ideal complement to candied figs with ice.
Candied figs cooking time: about 1 hour. Preparation of dessert: roughly 5 minutes.
For 10 persons: 1000g of figs; 1000 g of sugar; 125 ml water; and vanilla ice cream.
Wash the figs and drill through using a large needle. To make the syrup, put the sugar in a casserole pan and cook, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved in water. When the syrup is ready, add the figs and cook thoroughly for about 15 minutes. Let the syrup cool, then repeat the procedure two additional times.
Serve candied figs on dessert plates with vanilla ice cream.
