This is a simple and appetizing dish that will make you look like a super star. Stuff a wheel of brie with fig and throw it in the oven for 10 minutes. Top with cinnamon and serve with crackers for a light appetizer before the big meal comes out. This recipe goes perfectly with SIMI Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc.
Cut stem from figs and cut into quarters. Mix all ingredients and set aside to macerate for an hour.
Put the fig-sugar mixture into a low-sided pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a medium high heat, stir constantly with a wooden spoon, reduce over medium high heat for 10-12 minutes, or until thickened.
Discard the cinnamon stick. Ladle the jam into jars, and seal. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to a month.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
