Yield: 4 servings
|12 larges||Dried figs|
|1 cup||Orange juice|
|½ cup||Dry white wine|
|¼ pounds||Semisweet chocolate; grated|
|½ cup||Blanched sliced almonds|
Preheat oil to 450 degrees. Place figs, sugar, orange juice, white wine and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool and drain, reserving cooking liquid.
Remove stem from each fig and make an X shaped incision into each fig.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chocolate into each fig, add 1 teaspoon cream and 1 tablespoon sliced almonds and place each on a buttered cookie sheet. Place in oven for 5 minutes. Place remaining cream and chocolate in a small saucepan with 3 tablespoons fig cooking liquid and gently heat to form a sauce. Remove figs from oven. Place on 4 plates, spoon sauce over each fig, garnish with remaining almonds and serve warm. This recipe yields 4 servings.
