A lovely sweet spread which can be used in sandwiches and as an accompaniment to a cheese platter. 

Fills a 200ml jar
  • 280g dried figs
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Cut figs into small pieces. In a medium saucepan, combine figs with sugar and 1 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until most of liquid has evaporated and figs are easily pierced with the tip of a sharp paring knife, about 20 minutes. 

Transfer mixture to a food processor, add lemon juice and puree until smooth (add up to 1/4 cup additional water, if needed, to thin to desired consistency). Store in a sterilised jar.
