Fig Fudge
(Morgado de Figos do Algarve - Portugal)




  1. Mince the figs finely or put them through a food processor.
  2. Assemble the remaining dry ingredients, except for the sugar, in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the sugar and water in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring only until the sugar is dissolved, then boil without stirring for a minute or two, just until it has thickened and is slightly reduced.
  4. Remove from the heat and beat in the remaining ingredients. The mixture will be very stiff.
  5. Return to the heat and cook gently until it is slightly shiny and comes away from the sides and bottom of the pan in a mass. This only takes a few minutes.
  6. Pat into an 8-inch pan or shallow dish. Allow it to cool, then cut into small squares and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
