This is a recipe for Caramelized Fig Spoon Sweet 

2 kilos fresh figs, washed and peeled

1 kg.sugar

1 lemon

Wash, peel of the green skin from the figs taking care not to break the white skin...place them in a big 5 liter pot, slice the lemon and put it with the figs, pour the sugar on the top, cover the pot and leave it over night. 

the next morning when you uncover the pot you will see the sugar has melted and looks like a water. 
Put it on the stove, bring it to a boil and then simmer on very low temperature for 12 hours or until the syrup is thick like honey. 

no need to stir, just lift the pot and shake it every hour. 

When the sweet ready pour it in sterilized jars, turn them upside down for 10 minutes. Store them in a dry dark and cold place.

 

Enjoy!
