Making Fig Preserve

716e0085 139c 47a2 bc6e 64b25fee5fc2  img 8229

Making Fig Preserve and the recipe says to place figs in jar and pour brandy on top. It is 8:30 and all I have that is brandyish is Drambuie, Triple sec, and courvosiere. Do you think I can use any of these in place of brandy? Here is the link to the recipe I am using -

I would think that you could experiment with both the Drambuie or the courvosiere and have fabulous results. Good luck!

Actually I use to work in a resturant that used my dad's figs for a dish that consisted of Chicken and figs in drambuie... perhaps I will use that....

Courvosiere is brandy (cognac.) I could see adding a splash of Triple Sec, too.

I love the idea of Drambuie or Courvoisier. I'd love it even more if you'd post that recipe for chicken and figs in Drambuie.

Okay. I am going with the Drambuie... I have more of that than the Courvoisier! Thanks for the help!

But seeing I like Courvoisier more than Drambuie that is what I added!

I won't get more figs until later this week. I will try to make the dish but not sure if work schedule will allow it... But I will let you know if I do make it!

Okay the recipe is quite simple. It is from Nancy Lee who owned Nancy Lee's in New Haven. Just want her to get the credit on this one...
Dredge the chicken with flour. Saute. Add the drambuie. Add sliced figs and reduce.
