Fig and Onion Spread

Fig and Onion Spread

Thea McAbbott

"This is delicious spread on crackers or a sliced baguette with a smear of blue cheese. It can also be used as a topping for a wheel of warm brie. It's important to use a good quality aged balsamic vinegar in this recipe."

  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; stir onion in the hot oil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover saucepan, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and caramel-colored, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Stir figs into onion; cook and stir until figs begin to lose their shape and have softened into onion, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour balsamic vinegar into fig-onion mixture; cook until all the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, into fig-onion mixture until desired sweetness is reached. Serve warm or chilled.

I used green figs instead of black, did not put in any salt, and one table spoon of sugar. Turned out great.

Delicious, unusual & fun to serve to guests with fresh figs from our tree. I read the reviews and also added a little salt.

Question: what if the white spread just above the bread in the picture please? Havent tried the recipe yet though looking forward
