Amy's StoryAlways looking for new fig recipes when I have a bumper crop like this year. This one comes from Tessa West in De Ridder, Louisiana. These are delicious on toast and Tessa's grandfather loves them on pancakes. I haven't tried it yet but I think they would also be good with pork. I've used it as a glaze on a simple "figgy" cake...delicious!
figs, coarsely chopped
water or fruit juice or wine
1Clean figs and quarter or chop. Cook figs with 1/2 cup of water, juice, or wine. Figs will stick and scorch so stir often.
2After figs have cooked down, add in honey, brown sugar, and almond extract
3Continue to cook down til you reach desired consistancy.
4Remove from canning bath and allow to cool.
