Quantity Ingredient
500g dried figs
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3 tablespoons sugar
1 large orange
4 slices lemon

Method

  1. Wash figs and clip off stems. Put into a saucepan with cold water to cover, add ginger and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30–35 minutes or until figs are plump and soft. Drain, reserving liquid. Place figs in a serving dish.
  2. Measure liquid and return 250 ml to saucepan. Add sugar and cook gently for about 5 minutes. Peel zest thinly from orange and cut into julienne strips. Remove white pith and cut orange flesh into segments or thin slices. Add to syrup with orange strips and lemon slices. Pour syrup over figs; chill. Serve with plain yoghurt or sour cream flavoured with some finely chopped ginger in syrup.
