1 cinnamon stick
0.5 tsp whole peppercorn
3 whole cloves

Description:

  1. In medium sauce pan, combine figs, red wine, vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, peppercorns and cloves. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer.
  2. Simmer for 10 minutes or until figs are tender. Remove figs and continue to reduce red wine mixture until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain syrup and return figs to reheat.
