...or how to make a non-fig eater love figs! (It works! Really. Ask the Berry Gnome.)
Heat a good knob of butter in a frying pan. Halve figs lengthwise and add to pan. Turn over once or twice. When they are getting slightly soft, add some golden syrup. Amount varies on your sweet tooth. Stir to make sure the syrup does not stick to pan. When it's all a nice caramelly colour, it's ready. We like it with some icecream, a dollop of cream and some fresh strawberries, if you have any.
Next day, work in the garden or get some other exercise, so that you don't feel bad about indulging.
If you don't feel bad about indulging - even better! :)
