  • 1tsp Anise
Preparation:
  • Chop the dried figs and remove the stems.
  • Place in medium pot and mix in the sugar.
  • Add the water. you may add up to 1 cup of water, but you'll need to boil the mixture longer.
  • Stir the mixture and once it starts boiling add the Walnuts
  • Allow to boil on medium heat, then add the Sesame seeds.
  • Add the ground Anise and stir it well with the mixture.
  • Allow the mixture to thicken and then add the Lemon.

  1. Thank you for the last two recipes on figs. I grew up near a grove of fig trees and love the fruit very much.

  2. This idea makes me think of my recipe for making apricot jam with dried fruit. The flavour is so much more intense.
