Figs in syrup

I love simple recipes that are divine to taste, this fig recipe is one of my favorites it is simple easy to make and tastes wonderful.


1 kg Fresh figs.
300gr Sugar
300gr water
cloves enough for each fig
3 leaves of Lemon Geranium


When you are buying the figs for this desert make sure you get figs that are not too ripe, they should be holding themselves together. Boil water, add sugar and stir the syrup until the sugar dissolves, add the geranium leaves. Put one clove in each fig from the bottom. Place the figs in the boiling syrup and cook for 20 minutes just before you turn off the heat add few drops of lemon.

Serve it cold with clotted cream.
