1 tablespoon Brown sugar

This is a wonderful way to use dried figs, poaching them in an orange syrup and then adding fresh orange segments. You can make this dessert at any time of the year, served with a delicious mixture of Greek yogurt and honey.

Put the orange juice and sugar into a pan with the spices and heat gently until the sugar dissolves. Add the figs and lemon juice, and put in enough water to just cover the fruit. Cover the pan and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove the figs and boil the syrup hard until it reduces. Pour over the figs, add the orange segments, and chill.

Just before serving, stir the honey into the Greek yogurt and pass it around to spoon over the fig dish.
