Sweetening and boiling down inexpensive balsamic vinegar transforms it into a sophisticated sauce, which is delicious over figs or fresh strawberries.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 6 figs
  • 3/4 cups mascarpone cheese

Method

In small saucepan, bring vinegar with sugar to boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer until reduced to scant 1/4 cup (50 mL), about 10 minutes. Keep warm. (Make-ahead: Let cool; store in airtight container for up to 1 month. Rewarm to continue.)

Cut figs in half. Brush with one-quarter of the balsamic glaze. Place on greased grill over medium-low heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until softened, about 6 minutes.

Arrange 2 halves on each plate; add spoonful of mascarpone. Drizzle with remaining glaze.
