Too rushed in the morning for a homemade meal? No problem. Cook a batch of this delicious fig spread one evening and store it in the refrigerator.
- 6 oz dried fig(s), Black Mission, stems removed
- 1 tsp ginger root, fresh, diced
- 1 fl oz orange juice
- 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp table salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated by 3/4 the amount, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse on medium-high speed until mixture is well combined and smooth.
Yields about 2 tablespoons of fig spread per serving.
- Try the fig spread on toasted Weight Watchers Wheat English Muffins with 1 tablespoon of Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Whipped Cream Cheese Spread. Or spice up a basic cheese-and-cracker plate when entertaining by adding a small bowl of fig spread.
