- Place grape juice and 3 teaspoons of honey in a saucepan. Cook the mixture on high heat until it becomes syrupy, about 15 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 220C/430F. Crush the green peppercorns with a mortar and pestle and add to the grape syrup. Finely chop the pistachios.
- In a bowl, stir together fresh goat cheese, 2 teaspoons of honey, thyme leaves, and freshly ground black pepper.
- Slice each fig in half lengthwise. Make a depression in the middle with the back of a teaspoon. Fill the depression with goat cheese filling. Place them in a baking dish. Switch the oven function to grill and roast the filled fig halves for 6-8 minutes until the goat cheese is lightly browned. Serve with the grape syrup.
