How to make grilled fresh figs with a sweet balsamic reduction drizzle:
Ingredients- Balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, white sugar, fresh figs (white or black). I picked mine up at the local farmer’s market!
Pour balsamic vinegar into a small sauce pan and bring to boil. Lower heat to simmer until the vinegar reduces and thickens. Add a little brown and/or white sugar to taste, remove from heat and let cool. There are plenty of other recipes for this with other ingredients like honey, lemon, etc. added. I like just adding a little sugar, because it’s easy and you end up with a sauce that still truly tastes like balsamic vinegar.
The figs are simple. Cut fresh figs in half, coat the outside in olive oil, and the inside with balsamic vinegar. Grill cut-side up for 5-8 minutes with the grill lid closed. Remove, drizzle with balsamic reduction and enjoy!
