Another winner! DH brought me some fresh figs, and this seemed like the perfect way to use them. The syrup has a beautiful golden color, and smells just heavenly! A worthy use for that oh so expensive pinch of saffron. I also used a local honey, and the combination of flavors was just wonderful. A little sweet from the syrup, a little tart from the yogurt- just the perfect light dessert to finish an al fresco meal. Thanks so much for posting, Karen, I'll definitely make this again when the figs on my tree are ripe! Made for ZWT6.

Really, really awesome! So simple to make & with a wonderfully satisfying taste, too! Really enjoyed the combo of cinnamon, honey & fig! This is definitely a recipe I want to make another time when I have company ~ Would really like sharing this with others! Thanks for posting it!

How delicious. Figs here are not completely ripe, so I cut the ripest ones I could find from the tree and simmered about 8 minutes to get them 'fork tender'. The addition of saffron to the syrup was what brought this over the top. It added colour, and that delicate, slightly medicinal taste that is so good. (for those of you who have never had saffron, do give it a try - it adds wonderful flavour and colour!). Used our own delicious Greek thyme honey and served with a dollop of greek yoghurt for breakfast. Thanks!

Outstanding Luscious! Loved the sweet home grown figs enhanced with home grown saffron making the intoxicating syrup made with Cinnamon-Cardamom Honey. Merci!
