Recipe by Stay in the Bay NZ
These are to die for. Absolutely fabulous with a cheese board, they just add that magnificent flavour. We have access to three fig trees and make these all summer, they are gorgeous, you must have a dehydrator to make these though, the oven just doesn't work.
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut stems off figs, wash, prick well all around with fork. Place water, sugar and vinegar in saucepan, stir until sugar dissolves.
- Bring to the boil. Place figs in boiling syrup, reduce heat, simmer very slowly, uncovered 21/2 to 3 hours.
- Drain figs, place on fine wire rack and stand on oven tray.
- Place in dehydrator set at 140°F or 60°C and dehydrate for 24 hours, turning every few hours. They may not take quite as long depending on size of figs and where they are in the dehydrator.
