The instruction how to make Red wine sticky figs

  1. Place the figs in a medium bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover and set aside for 8 hours or overnight to soften. Drain.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the cinnamon stick, peppercorns and bay leaves, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic.
  3. Add the red wine, brown sugar and drained figs, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or until liquid reduces to a thick syrup. Remove from heat and set aside for 1 hour to cool.
  4. Serve the figs at room temperature with the cheese and wafers.
