I tripled this recipe as I am making it for an event I am catering. Too much wine and didn't reduce enough. I took out figs after cooking for over 20 minutes and blended in food processor and added about half the wine back in. I added additional chopped figs to make it easier to spoon onto crostini. I also added fresh herbs and a bit of honey to goat cheese. Have had to tweak all the recipes on here
