Ingredients

Figs:
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 8 fresh (about 1/2 pound) or 12 dried figs, halved lengthwise
Goat cheese:
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 (3 1/2-ounce) log goat cheese
  • Fresh thyme sprigs, to garnish

Directions

Figs: In a nonreactive medium pot combine the wine, honey, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer, over low heat, and cook until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Add the figs and cook for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. Remove the cinnamon stick.

Goat cheese: In a shallow bowl, mix together the walnuts and thyme. With damp hands, roll the goat cheese into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls into the nut mixture until coated.

To serve: Spoon the figs into 2 glasses and drizzle with the wine syrup. Add the herbed goat cheese and serve.
