Kitchen Dictionary: konfyt

A preserve made in South Africa, not to be confused with canned jams/preserves. It is a term applied to chunks of fruit (watermelon rind, quince, fig or other hard fruit) soaked in lime water then cooked in sugar syrup and spices -- served in syrup and eaten on their own. Fruits for preserving can be ripe or under ripe, but they should be well swollen and not hollow. Green fig is one of the most popular, steeped in a syrup seasoned with cinnamon and dried ginger.
