This easy jam requires very little work but goes far to liven up sandwiches and cheese platters. Try spreading it over a thin round of pizza dough with prosciutto and fontina (bake at 475 for 12 minutes) or brush over chicken breasts before roasting for the easiest yet most sophisticated chicken ever.
1 lb dried Mission figs, ends removed
1/2 cup Champagne Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbsp honey
pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Add 2/3 cup water.
Cook covered, over low heat for 20-25 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed and figs are very soft.
Puree using a blender, food processor or immersion blender.
