Figs – Recipe 4

Thanks to the mascarpone pusher, my friend Michael, I made Poached Figs in Marsala Wine served with mascarpone. The hardest part was heading out to a store to buy the mascarpone. Since I am still inspired right now to use up the pantry and freezer supplies as inspired by Hattie Brooks. I broke down from the pressure and did it though. And oh was I rewarded. Thank you Michael, it was delicious!

Poached Figs in Marsala Wine


Marsala Wine

12 ripe figs

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

mascarpone cheese

Pinch of ground nutmeg


2 cups of water with ½ cup sugar

I soaked the figs in the wine for several hours in the fridge and then poached them in the sugar water. Plated them with mascarpone cheese, chopped walnuts, a pinch of nutmeg and a drizzle of honey.
