   Place figs and water in saucepan.  Bring to hard boil,
   then lower heat to simmer.  Cover and let cook 20

   again for about 20 minutes or until figs are plump and
   transparent.  Cool in syrup.  Add a little water, if
   needed, but keep it rich.  Just before serving, insert
   toasted almond in each fig.  Delicious with roast
   turkey, baked chicken, beef, pork or ham.
