Figs with cream with syrup of currants

Figs ice cream with currant syrup: easy recipe that will amaze young and old

Figs ice cream with currant syrup: I say immediately that this recipe is not mine. Is’ di Alain Ducasse. I allowed myself to make two small changes, mandatory, the other by choice. I used no strawberries but the currant and I turned into a syrup made sifted. In addition, I replaced the honey with agave juice to lighten the sugar content, given the presence of figs and sugar in the compost. It is an extremely simple preparation, let's say that it is one of the few in the volume of all its recipes that I felt to experience in full.

The taste is exceptional: the lightly sweetened cream and mixed with the pulp of figs has the flavor that was to have the ambrosia and the slight acidity of grease currant mouth. You can prepare in advance and store them in the freezer, and then bring them back to a service temperature in the refrigerator: It is a sweet 'one leads to another', so definitely make plenty. And if you like desserts with figs, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH FIGS, sweet but not only, as the PORK LOIN WITH ORANGE WITH DRIED FIGS, CHESTNUT AND ONIONS. And now I wish you good day!. Have a good day!

Figs with cream with syrup of currants

The preparation of frozen figs with cream and red currant syrup is fast. Wash the figs, cut the top cap and set it aside, then gently flush the figs from the pulp, taking away as much as possible but taking care not to force not to break the skin. Put the pulp in a bowl of figs.

Whisk the cream stops with agave syrup or honey and incorporate slowly to the pulp of figs. Fill each fig with the mixture of cream and pulp and place them in the refrigerator (or freezer if you have to eat them after several hours, You will then just pull out figs stuffed half an hour before serving).

For compost, put in a pan currants, sugar and lemon juice and cook over a low heat until it forms a thick syrup. Pass through a sieve to obtain a syrup. Serve three ice cream per person figs stuffed with whipped cream and garnish the dish with redcurrant syrup. Bon appétit!
