Several of you asked for mother in law's recipes (actually these are more her thoughts than written recipes) while I was on holiday in Sonora, Here they are. ENJOY
Get about 30-50 ripe figs, or as many as you want to make
Cut stem,leave skin & wash in water
Add 1/4 cup of water to a pot
Add figs and boil,keep stirring continuously to achieve an even cook until soft (about 10-15 min.)
Mash figs in pot while still boiling.
Add natural sugar, ground cinnamon and cloves to taste
Keep stirring until reducing mix from a soft to a hard consistency, until it bubbles & bubbles splash hard (love this line hahaha)
