With all the figs coming in early, I'm putting a lot of them in the freezer for now. I'll make one big batch of preserves and then save some to experiment on with new recipes!
This recipe is great as a topping for oatmeal, pancakes, biscuits and ice cream...
plus anything else you can imagine!
4 cups of figs, washed, stemmed and quartered
8 tablespoons of sugar (or honey)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
4 oz of water (for consistency)
Combine the ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer until mixture is the consistency of a thick glaze.
