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
12 ripe figs
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
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.
