Another night of cooking in my kitchen. I must say, I would be very happy cooking ALL DAY. It’s so relaxing and I LOVE tasting all the new and wild things that are created in there. Last night was Gorgonzola Fig Pizza with chicken.

Gorgonzola Fig Pizza

Balsamic Fig Compte

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chopped fresh figs
  • 1 tablespoon honey

The recipe called for fresh figs.. however.. after a nice trip to the store.. I discovered fresh figs are a seasonal thing. I should have know. So I went with what I thought would be the next best thing.. Dried Turkish Figs. I doubled the liquid.. broth, vinegar & honey!

1. Place olive oil in hot pan. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes.

2. Add the rest of the ‘stuff’ and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower heat.. simmer and cook until thick and syrupy, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat.
