Autumnal Fig Sauce

13 10 2008

While making this apple pancake dish with Lindsay, Chris, Ellen, Alice, and others this weekend, we invented a fig sauce. It was from the remains of cooking the apples, so I’ve tried my best to isolate it all on its own. For your pleasure:

Autumnal Fig Sauce

3 tablespoons butter
1 cups brown sugar
1-2 cups figs, chopped
2 cups apple cider
1 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon orange peel

Melt the butter in a pan and add the brown sugar and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange peel. Pour in one cup of apple cider and the chopped figs. Let it cook down until fig seeds get mixed thoroughly throughout, about five or ten minutes. Then add the rest of the apple cider and the orange juice for more body, and let that cook down to desired thickness. Put on desired food.

I just read an interesting suggestion in which you boil down apple cider until it’s syrupy and pour that over pancakes. I think it’d go really well if you made some plain pancakes with a little extra vanilla and reasonable dash of nutmeg and cloves.
