Fresh Fig and Port Sorbet
90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
7 ingredients
1-2 servings
The ingredients are clearly classic Portuguese (figs, port) and sorbet was almost part of the Moorish repertoire (ice was brought from the Sierra Nevada mountains to the Alhambra to provide coolness for sliced fruit), but in all other respects, this is about as non-traditional a recipe as you can find for the Zaar World Tour 5 (2009)! This recipe uses no milk or cream; the flavor of the figs and port is there, but understated and it is absolutely wonderful. You can stay within the traditional Iberian palate and use vanilla sugar instead of plain sugar (don't use vanilla extract, unless you cook off the alcohol), but that's just gilding the lilly.Full credit goes to Eating Out Loud (, who in turn credits Ms. Adventures in Italy for the idea of a Fig Sorbet (
