  • ½ pound fresh figs, stems removed and chopped
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 (16-ounce) containers plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs
  1. In a large saucepan, place figs, honey, ¼ cup water, sugar, and lemon juice; stir well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until a thick syrup forms and figs are very soft. Remove from heat, and cool.
