I found this on Food 52 while waiting for something. What a tasty idea.
My Private Note
- 1Place a saucer in the freezer for later use.
- 2Cut figs in half and in a pot with the water and bring to a boil.
- 3Lower heat to a simmer and cook for about an hour or until the liquid is reduced by at least half and the figs are soft.
- 4Drain the figs using a muslin-lined colander over a bowl.
- 5When the figs are cool enough to handle, squeeze to remove as much liquid as you can.
- 6Place the strained liquid into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook for about twenty minutes reducing it further.
- 7Test several drops of hot syrup on the cold saucer for a dense, honey-like consistency.
- 8Pour the fig honey into clean, sterilized, warm jars and use safe canning technique to seal.
- 9This does not include cooling or canning time.
