juice of 1 small lemon or ½ of a big, juicy lemon

Garnish: Toasted walnut halves and slivered almonds

Directions:

In a saucepan, bring the honey and water to a boil. Add the halved apricots and figs and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the raisins, spearmint and anise seeds Continue to cook for about 20 minutes. When the figs are thick and tender and the liquid has become a very thick syrup, stir in the lemon juice.
