Figs with mozzarella, prosciutto and vincotto


Vincotto, or cooked wine, is made with unfermented grape must, reduced to a thick sweet syrup and used as a condiment. Here we've upped the fig factor by using vincotto enriched with the fruit.

You'll need

8 thin slices prosciutto di San Daniele 6 figs, scored in a cross at the top and squeezed lightly to open 1 buffalo mozzarella (250gm), slightly pulled apart ¼ cup (loosely packed) basil, torn For drizzling: fig vincotto (see note) and extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Arrange prosciutto, figs and mozzarella on a large plate. Season liberally and set aside until the mozzarella and prosciutto come to room temperature. Scatter with basil leaves, then drizzle with vincotto and extra-virgin olive oil to taste. Serve with toasts.

Note Fig vincotto is available from Italian grocers and select delicatessens.
