Serves: 4 

  • 250g polenta
  • 800ml of water
  • 150ml Lemon Aspen Syrup
  • 2 fresh figs
  • 20g Wild Rosella Confit
  • 50g castor sugar
  • 30ml sugarbag
  • 100ml fresh cream
  • 40g Riberry Confit

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a pot, combine the water, lemon aspen syrup and polenta; bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
  2. The polenta will take 5 -7 minutes to cook through, once at a boil.
  3. Spoon out the polenta from the pot and place into a flat tray and allow to cool.
  4. Once cool, cut into triangle or hexagon shapes, with three pieces per serve.
  5. In a bowl, briskly whip the fresh cream to stiff peaks and flavour with the sugarbag; use maple syrup as a substitute; set aside.
  6. Slice the figs into thin slices.
  7. In another pot, heat caster sugar until dissolved; it may require a little water to soften the mix.
  8. Finally assemble the dish, by placing a piece of the polenta on the plate. Then add a little cream and fig slice and repeat, building up the dish. Garnish with cream, riberries and the sugared rosella.
