This homemade fig syrup made from fresh figs is so good with pancakes, biscuits and waffles. Ces’t Bon!!
Make extra and can for later.
- 1 cup pureed figs
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup Karo or corn syrup
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Watkins butter flavorings
The first step to making the syrup is to cook the figs. Biggest question is how much sugar to use. Here is a fairly good ratio: 1 part figs to 1/2 part sugar (volume/volume)
Prepare and cook the figs until softened. The figs will release juices and combine with the sugar to make a syrup. Measure out the amount of figs needed and use the syrup to puree the figs.
In a heavy pan place 1 cup pureed figs, 1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 1/4 cup Karo syrup. Bring to a full rolling boil and then boil for one more minute.
Remove from heat and add the butter flavoring. Place in small canning jars and seal. Process in hot water bath for 15 minutes.
