This week I opted for the Figs, I love Figs, whether dry, fresh or cooked.
I bought only 8 figs (the green are much better for this recipe).
- 8 fresh figs
- 500g of white granulated sugar
- Wash and drain your figs (keep the skin).
- In a cooking pot add 250g of white granulated sugar in the bottom of your pot , add your figs on the top of the sugar and pour the rest of the sugar on the top of the figs.
- Marinate overnight.
- The following morning, pour with water just to cover your figs and cook very slowly on low heat without stirring.
- From time to time rotate your pot until the syrup becomes thick but the figs stay firm. It takes 2 hours cooking.
- Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
- Add the figs in a dessert bowl and pour syrup on the top of it.
This recipe is for a small conservation, there is no preservative (you can keep it in the fridge for 2 weeks ).
Usually it is the same weigh of figs and same weigh of sugar. I prefer to add half of sugar, the figs are usually a sweet enough.
