place the figs in a saucepan ( weigh them first)
cut a lemon as thin as possible and put on top.
I used 1kg of figs, and a whole lemon
Cover with their weight in sugar and let them cook over a low heat.
The sugar turns to liquid and the figs poach, soaking up the lemon infused syrup.
Let them slowly cook for about 45 minutes.
Place in sterilised jars, they keep forever!!
