  • Rinse almonds in several changes of cold water. Soak almonds in 1/2 cup cold water overnight to soften almonds.
  • Core apples and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges.
  • In a 4-quart saucepan, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Add pork and return to a boil, skimming any scum that forms. Add the apple wedges, dried figs, almonds and their soaking water.
  • Return to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 3 hours.
  • Serve piping hot (no more than 1 1/2 cups per person).
