Figs with cinammon syrup

Photobucket

Figs were an undiscovered land for me before I moved to Turkey. Now I'm just longing for summer just to get some fresh figs in our Saturday street market... Ok, ok ... I'll tell you the truth, I don't go to the street market as it is still exotic for me because of all these shoutings screamings... However, I take the advantage of my neighbourhood supermarkets and their great variety of fruit. Last week I was missing LT so much that I needed something to remind me of it. I needed some spirit of Christmas and what kind of Christmas without cinammon. Let it be Christmas all year round... Figs with cinammon!!!

What we need:

dried figs

1 glass of water

5 tbsp of sugar

2 sticks of cinammon

2 cloves

some wallnut or almond ( optional)

What we do:

1. Wash the figs in boiled water.

2. Pour new water over the figs. Let it boil for 5 min.

3. Add sugar, cinammon and cloves. Simmer for 3 min until syrup thickens a bit.

4. Place the figs onto the plate, cut one side and stuff it with a nut. 

5. Enjoy!!! NB: It's really sweet, so you can use less sugar or eat it with icecream, i.e. take vanilla ice-cream and pour the figs with cold syrup over it.

  1. Oooo, kad taip pas mus šviežių figų būtų... Būna kartais didžiuosiuose PC, bet kaina už vienetą beprotiška, o išvaizda tokia neapetitiška, kad net ranka nekyla pirkti...

    Kaip norėčiau šito saldėsio..

  2. Ko gero tikrai labai labai saldu.... Bet cinamonas puikiai dera su figomis.

  3. Saldumas priklauso koki sirupa padarysi, juk dar galima citrinos sulciu ipilti, tam kad miela rukstele butu! :)
