H is for HIGO

Higo is fig and although it is not necessarily a tropical, exotic fruit from Guatemala its shelf space in a "Venta de Dulces Tipicos" is prominent.

I just finished eating a fig pie made by our friend of Pasteles Finos and I took the opportunity to ask her if she knew how to make the Higos en Dulce (head picture), this is what she said:

With a knife scrape the outer layer of the uncooked fig. Make a cross cut on the bottom of the fig, boil them in plenty of water for about 30 minutes, rinse, place them in water with plenty of sugar until desired consistency is reached.

No me gustan los higos, pero me gusta mucho ver tantas cosas que hacen con ellos.
Esa serie está muy linda y original.
