Figs in wine

Recipe: Figs in wine

Recipe for figs in wine, they arrive on the market shelves. I love this fruit soaked in sun and sugar that comes to us from the south of France. It reminds me of my vacation in Miramas in the mouths of the Rhône, there was in the middle of the property a huge fig tree that must have been several decades old. In high season, this generous tree collapsed under its fruits and allowed itself to be marauded as if by relief. What a pleasure to bite into these hot sun-kissed figs. I offer you a red wine sauce for a majestic dessert, you will serve these figs in wine very cold, they will be even more appreciated with these scorching days. Of course this recipe applies to other fruits, I am thinking in particular of pears, but it will be part of another recipe, I already have some ideas that need to ripen a little.
