Engraved in the memory as the sweets offered by moms and grandmothers at home, they continue to have a place on today’s table, especially during the summer months. Here I suggest my own recipe for a dessert of strawberry that you will make with a few ingredients and it will remind you of August summers!


  • 1kg figs
  • 1kg sugar
  • 3 cups of water
  • Peeled almonds
  • Juice of 2 lemons


  1. Wash the figs well to remove the milk they will have produced. With a sharp knife, cut the stalk a little and remove the dark hard mark from the bottom, removing any spores that will be present.
  2. Boil the figs in plenty of water, until they are pierced with a fork, for about 5-10 ‘. Strain the figs, rinse them and strain them again. Then put them in a bowl with water that you have poured the juice of 2 lemons and let them tighten for 2-3 hours. Then strain them well.
  3. Put in each fig an almond. Bring the water and sugar to a boil. When the sugar has melted, add the figs. Boil them in the syrup for about 10-15 minutes (skim if necessary), turn off the heat, remove and leave them there overnight.
  4. The next day, add the lemon juice and boil the dessert again, until the syrup sets.
