The ingredient of Fig and pear paste

  1. 6 just-ripe figs, coarsely chopped
  2. 4 just-ripe williams pears, peeled, cored, chopped
  3. 1/4 cup (60ml) water
  4. 500g white sugar (approximately)

The instruction how to make Fig and pear paste

  1. Combine the figs, pear and water in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
  2. Transfer mixture to the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Weigh mixture. You will need the same weight of sugar as the puree for this recipe.
  3. Combine the puree and sugar in a heavy-based saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 hours or until mixture is very thick. Remove from heat and set aside for 30 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Grease the base and sides of six 1/2 cup (125ml) ramekins. Spoon the puree evenly among the ramekins and smooth the surface. Loosely cover with baking paper and set aside for 2 days or until surface feels dry to the touch and mixture thickens. Turn out of the ramekins and cover with plastic wrap. Store in the fridge.
  5. Spoon onto a cheese platter and serve with cheese and biscuits.
