BBQ Figs with fresh mascarpone and rum sauce


6 fresh figs
3 tbsp. rum of your choice
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1 cup of mascarpone
1/2 cup of fresh red currants to serve



Preheat your BBQ.

Tear of 2 50cm long pieces of aluminium foil and lay one on top of the other at 90 degree angles to form a cross. Place the figs in the centre of the foil before sprinkling over the rum and brown sugar. Lastly add the vanilla to the figs by placing it evenly around the base of where the figs sit. Bring the edges of the foil up to the centre and crimp together to make a sealed parcel, leave a little breather at the very top for steam to escape.

Place the figs on the cool part of your BBQ and close the lid and cook for 10-15 minutes or until just soft. Carefully remove the figs from the foil and place onto a serving plate before pouring the cooking liquor over the top and serving with fresh red currants and mascarpone.
