In medium saucepot over medium heat stir all ingredients together, except rosemary. Heat until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil.
Add rosemary, cover pot and gently boil for 5 minutes to release juices from the figs then reduce heat to medium low, uncover pot, and simmer 25 – 30 minutes or until figs are soft and syrup is thick. Remove rosemary sprig and serve warm or at room temperature. Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Freezing your fresh figs are a great way to preserve the ingredient for your next recipe. First, wash your fresh figs under cool water and sort out any that are tender, as these will not freeze well. Pat dry the figs and place on a wax-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in your freezer and allow the figs to freeze for two to four hours. Once the figs are frozen, remove from baking sheet and store in a freezer-safe plastic storage bag. Store for up to three months.
