Dried Figs with Walnuts
250 gr dried Turkish figs, cut off the stems
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup walnuts, crumbled
Put the figs in a pot and cover them with water. Boil for about 20 minutes until they are softened over medium heat.
Drain and cut off the stalks. Place them in a medium pot and put the sugar on top. Add 2/3 cup water and cook about 25 minutes on medium-low heat. If necessary add more water. Leave some syrup in it at about the same height as the top of the figs.
Place on a service plate. Let cool, then garnish with walnut crumbs.
I suggest you use figs from Turkey as they taste better :)
