Place the fruits onto a baking sheet lined with tin foil and sprinkle with the muscavado sugar.

Half whip the cream with the caster sugar and then pour in the cooled port.

Place the fruits under the grill for 10 minutes. Check the fruits during this time to ensure they cook evenly. The fruits should be grilled until dark brown.

Remove the figs after 5 minutes and continue to cook the remaining fruit.
