Seasons come and seasons go, and with them also, their bounty of fruits and vegetables.
At the moment it is the fig that I am trying to savour before it disappears until next Autumn. If you could get figs all year round I doubt they would be as enjoyable; having particular seasons for particular produce makes eating more exciting. When I grow tired of eating mangoes, I can sink my teeth into juicy apples. Even more special are those whose availability are short lived, such as figs.
prep time: 3mins.
cooking time: 12mins.
taste: 2.5/5* I did not have Port at hand and used a Merlot, which I think is the reason Ryan didn't like it so much, he said it needed to be sweeter and less wine-y, the merlot was overpowering, he could barely taste the figs.
would I make it again: Yes - I shall track down a nice Port and try again.
