Makes 1 Cup
1 C dried figs, chopped (I used about 9 Turkish figs)
1 C water
1 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
1. Place figs and water in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until they reach a simmer (light bubbling), then reduce heat to low and cook until water is almost completely evaporated. (You still want a tiny bit of liquid…it will be thick like a reduction.)
2. Once the figs have cooled, place them and the lemon juice and salt in a food processor and process until smooth.
3. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate. It will keep for 7-10 days. (Though I’ve used it after 2 weeks with no problem;)
