One of our fig trees yields a lot of fruits these days. Too much to eat and we wondered what to do. I found a recepy that made a nice salsa to accompany meat, fish and poultry.
- * 1 lb fresh figs, chopped
- * 1/3 cup red wine
- * 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- * 1/8 teaspoon salt
- * 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- * 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- * 1 sprig fresh thyme or rosemary.
Combine all ingredients with 1/2 cup water in a saucepan.
Cover; bring to boil over high heat.
Reduce to a simmer; cook, partially covered, until fruit has broken down, about 20 to 30 minutes.
Let cool slightly; remove thyme/rosemary sprig.
After a round in the food processor, or a few rounds with the multi processor add some lemonjuice and fill the stuff into hot jars.
Today we just finished cooking 6,5 kilos figs - ended up with 13 jars of fig salsa (1/2 liter jars).
Now its only enjoying left, in addition to giving to friends and neighbors.
