      I had trouble with this one. Even though I'd soaked the figs in the salt water, they continued to release juices when I cooked them in the sugar syrup. Had to stop cooking when the skins burst on some of them. Tried to dry out the rest on a rack over a plate, but they were moldy after 2 days. Where did I go wrong? Comments appreciated.
