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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut stems off figs, wash, prick well all around with fork. Place water, sugar and vinegar in saucepan, stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Bring to the boil. Place figs in boiling syrup, reduce heat, simmer very slowly, uncovered 21/2 to 3 hours.
  3. Drain figs, place on fine wire rack and stand on oven tray.
  4. 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.
