Elegant and tasteful dessert that will compliment any gourmet diner
Dried Figs and Apricots in Vanilla Agave Wine Syrup

· 1 bottle (750 ml) Gewürztraminer
or Johannesburg Riesling

· 2/3 cup 21 Missions Agave Syrup Vanilla

· 8 ounces (12-14 figs) Valley Fig Growers
Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or
Sun-Maid Calimyrna figs, stems removed

· 4 ounces (about 1 cup packed)
B & R Farms dried apricots,
about 12 halves

· 2 Whole Spice Company cinnamon sticks,
each broken in half

· 1/2 cup Cowgirl Creamery Creme fraiche
or WholeSoy & Co. yogurt

· 1 tablespoon toasted slivered natural

In a large saucepan combine the wine, vanilla agave syrup and cinnamon stick.
Cover and cook over medium low heat, 10 - 15 minutes. Add the figs and apricots
and cook until the fruits are plumped and tender, about 15 - 20 more minutes.

Transfer the fruit, cinnamon sticks and agave-wine sauce to a heat-resistant bowl. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 4 hours.

Discard cinnamon sticks and spoon chilled fruit and agave-wine sauce into ramekins or serving dish. Top with a spoonful of Creme fraiche or yogurt. Garnish with a few toasted slivered almonds.

Makes 4 to 6 servings. Adapted from Fig Heaven, 2004, by Marie Simmons.
