Fig, Gorgonzola & Rosemary Spread

In this recipe, a bite of Gorgonzola plays wonderfully off the richness of figs and balsamic vinegar.


1 cup dried, halved mission figs (top stem cut off)
¾ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup light brown sugar
1 star anise
1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola (or blue cheese)
¼ cup chopped rosemary


Place figs, vinegar, brown sugar and star anise in saucepot with 1½ cups water. Simmer over low heat for approximately 30 minutes. Transfer mixture to blender and purée until silky smooth. It should have the consistency of honey; if too stiff, add some cool water to adjust. Set aside to cool.

Spread fig jam onto grissini with a spoon. Crumble blue cheese on top of fig jam coated grissini, sprinkle rosemary on top.  Wrap in prosciutto. Makes 2½ cups.
