degree F.

Remove roast from oven and let rest 20 minutes before carving.

Sauce: Combine port, Zinfandel, sugar and figs in a heavy bottomed
saucepan. Cook over high heat until the mixture reaches the consistency of
a conserve. Puree in a blender, and strain through a fine sieve. Set aside.

Combine shallots and a splash of port in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook
until almost dry. Add the fig-port syrup and demi-glace. Cook until reduced
by half. Season with salt and whisk in butter.

Carve roast and garnish each serving with a portion of the remaining
stuffing, a bit of sauce and, if desired, fresh black figs.
