About 1 cup ripe fig pulp
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Scoop out fig pulp.
2. In saucepan, add vinegar, fig pulp and simmer on low heat until mixture reduces down to about half. Stir occasionally (every 5-8 minutes) . This will take about 20 minutes.
3. Allow the mixture to cool and place it in a blender or food processor. Blend thoroughly until mixture combines and becomes smooth. In separate bowl, strain out the seeds.
4. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and combine.
5. This is very concentrated so add small amounts to your favorite marinades, sauces, and dressing. mmm...it is delicious drizzled on a spinach salad with walnuts and blue cheese!
