Fig recipe.

You will need.

  • 3-4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar


Boil till syrupy. Put in clean ripe, but not over-ripe figs (leave stalk on), and simmer for two and half – 3 hrs. Drain. Dry in sun or low oven. Pack in bags and freeze. Delicious in sandwiches, with crackers and cheese, as a treat in school lunch boxes.
