1. Wash figs.

2. Boil vinegar, sugar and spices briefly in a pot.

3. Add the figs and cook on a low flame until the fruit is soft (about 15 minutes).

4. Remove just the fruit and place in a canning jar, if available. If not a regular jar is fine.

5. If the mixture is thin, boil until it thickens. Pour over the figs in the jar and seal tightly.

6. If it is not hermetically sealed (as in a canning jar), then refrigerate. Allow for at least a week to pass for optimum taste.
