Ingredients/Materials Clear glass jar with lid (however many you need) Figs (again, however many you want to intoxicate) Walnut pieces or halves Brandy lemon zest-- one lemon per glass jar Wash and dry figs, and make sure your glass container is clean, sterilized and dry. Make a small slit in the bottom of each fig (not the stem end), and insert a walnut half or piece into the walnut. Place in jar, and when the jar is filled with figs, pour in the brandy to cover figs. Then add the zest of one lemon before covering with a lid. Keep in a cool dark place for at least a month (mine's in the pantry). Drunken figs are great for adult appetizers. Now, keep in mind that I haven't eaten any of these yet since I just bottled them, but I can't imagine this is anything less than sublime. While you can serve the figs by themselves, try creating an appetizer plate with dried Turkish apricots, walnuts, Bleu cheese and small appetizer crackers (my new cracker obsession is NutThins). Bon appetit! A friend of mine, Jason, worried about what to do with all the leftover brandy when you take the figs out. It's no longer sipping brandy, but don't throw it out! This post from Savoring Every Bite gives some ideas on how to use that leftover brandy--making a reduction to use as a sauce to pour over the figs. Anything not used in a reduction or sauce can be reserved for baking--yum!
