2 cups port wine
8 oz.. light brown sugar, packed
4 shallots, chopped
1 lemon, zested
1 cinnamon stick
1 t. kosher salt
1/4 t. ground allspice
1/3 t. ground cloves
1 lb. firm fresh figs, rinsed, stems removed, halved (or dried figs)
8 oz. dried apricot halves
Method: in large saucepan, combine port, sugar, shallots, lemon zest, cinnamon stick, salt, allspice and cloves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until mixture is thickened and reduced by 2/3, forming thick syrup. Remove cinnamon stick. Add figs and apricots; cook gently for approximately 30 minutes, or until figs are very soft and begin to fall apart.
