Not fig preserves.
I'm trying to make a recipe that says something like "sprinkle fresh figs with soda....pour boiling water over, and wait five minutes ( toughens skins)...rinse three times with cold water....pour a bunch of sugar over....allow to sit in sugar for two days, then "follow this cycle for the next several days". Then. "after 2 days... simmer.... make sure that all of the figs get some time in the sugary mess ....transfer to holding container and wait 2 more days. ...do this cycle 3 times."
What I don't understand is what the "cycle" refers to. Surely not sprinkling with baking soda, and rinsing. Maybe the "pouring a bunch of sugar"? I believe this was a recipe by Edna Lewis in a book called The Gift of Southern Cooking by Scott Peacock and Edna Lewis.
I'm hoping for something like whole glaceed figs.
