Greek yoghurt with Dried Figs in Port

This is the one of the easiest and most delicious desserts around. You can rustle it up in no time at all. Serve it in a large bowl in the middle of the table for everyone to help themselves.

large tub Greek yoghurt
dried figs
toasted walnuts, chopped (optional)

If you have 10 minutes free, take a bunch of dried figs, remove the hard stalks and and place them in a jar. Cover them in port (you don't need to use the most expensive). You can add some spices to flavour if your wish, fennel seeds, star anise or cinnamon sticks. Close the lid and leave to stand. In fact the longer you keep them, the better they become.

Place the figs with the port in a saucepan, bring to a boil and allow to reduce gently until the figs have softened and the port has become syrupy and sticky and is coating the figs. Allow to cool.*

Pour the yoghurt into a serving bowl. Drizzle with honey, top with the sticky port figs and if you wish, scatter with chopped walnuts.

* The figs are perfect to use this way in salads or served with a beautiful blue cheese.
