I found this on Food 52 while waiting for something. What a tasty idea.
- Place a saucer in the freezer for later use.
- Cut figs in half and in a pot with the water and bring to a boil.
- Lower 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.
- Drain the figs using a muslin-lined colander over a bowl.
- When the figs are cool enough to handle, squeeze to remove as much liquid as you can.
- Place 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.
- Test several drops of hot syrup on the cold saucer for a dense, honey-like consistency.
- Pour the fig honey into clean, sterilized, warm jars and use safe canning technique to seal.
- This does not include cooling or canning time.
