After this time we cover the pot, remove from heat and let stand overnight, to the mixture is well macerated.
The next day, we boil the content, add the figs clean, and leave it to medium heat for ten minutes; below we raise the heat to high and boil down five minutes.
After that, we take the figs with forceps, to avoid contact with hands, we are introducing in jars and do the same with the syrup, in this case we’ll pouring from a jug.
The content must be kept at a distance of a finger from the top to get hermetically sealed jars.
