A simple, delicious end of season dessert. A touch of brown sugar, pungent balsamic vinegar, and fruity olive oil give a bit of sophistication to this rustic dish.
1 pint figs, halved
1/4 cup brown sugar
good balsamic vinegar
vanilla ice cream
To make, just rub a little brown sugar into the figs and grill them over high heat until caramelized and they have grill marks (about 2-3 minutes). Serve on top of vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of fruity olive oil (rather than a sharp, grassy variety) and some good balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
