1 lb. dried figs
1/3 cup sugar or honey
1 Tbsp. anise or more to taste
1/3 cup walnuts (chopped)
Place figs in bowl of warm water for a few minutes to soften
slightly and to rinse. Drain water and cut out the small stem from
each fig. Discard. Chop the figs coarsely by using a food
processor or by hand. Cook the figs over low heat in heavy-duty
sauce pan with enough water to cover. Cook over low heat until
tender. Add sugar or honey and cook until mixture becomes darker
and a bit sticky like a preserve consistency (approximately 20
minutes). Add the anise and cook several minutes longer. Remove
from heat and mix in the walnuts. Let cool. Store in clean jars
in refrigerator. This preserve can also be put in jars and sealing
method used if preferred.
