Servings 25 cup


  • 250 grams dried figs (finely diced)
  • ½ cup sake
  • 200 grams granulated sugar
  • cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 200 grams apples (peeled and finely diced)


  • Put the figs, and sake in a sealable bag, and press out as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Soak overnight.
  • When you're ready to make the preserves, add the sugar, water and cinnamon stick to a small saucepan and then add the apples and figs.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat and then adjust the heat down to maintain a medium boil.
  • Boil until the preserves are thick and syrupy, about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure it's not burning.
  • Let your preserves cool before transferring to a container and storing in the fridge.
