  2. Melt the fig jam and balsamic vinegar together in a big frying pan or wok. When bubbling, add the sprouts and fry until they start to caramelise. Lower the heat and add the grapes, then cook for a few mins more until the grapes are hot and softening. Add the walnuts and seasoning, then tip into a serving dish. Mix the yogurt and chopped mint, and dollop over the hot sprouts. Garnish with a few extra mint leaves.

good recipe to make sprouts more festive and interesting combination of flavors. i used it for an xmas diner. the only downside is the color. The balsamic vinegar turns everything brown and the sprouts lost their vibrant green colour so my guests didnt go for this dish, i had to advertise it but once they tried it they liked it a lot.
I will make again but will switch the vinegar for a white version, either white wine vinegar or white balsamic.
