Dried Figs with Walnuts

(Incir Tatlisi)

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 :)
