PREPARING THE FIGS

PREPARING THE COMPOTE

Place the saucepan over a gentle heat and bring the syrup to the boil. Allow to simmer uncovered, stirring the figs gently now and again. When the syrup has thickened and the figs are nicely caramelised, add the 1 Silver Medal Balsamic Vinegar and the coarsely chopped walnuts.

HOW TO STORE AND SERVE IT

Immediately pour the figs along with their cooking liquid into sterilised jars, turning them upside down to create a vacuum.
