CLICK FOR THE RECIPE

figs from Cosenza hills*    g    400
peeled almonds    g    400
30 degree baume syrup    g    150    
Strega liqueur    g    50
icing sugar    g    500
sugar paste    g    300
glucose    g    100

Finely grind in a refiner, adding pieces of dried raspberries, mix well and make some balls weighing approx. 18 g, shaping them like a spinning top. Cover with sugar paste and then after, cover the top part with milk chocolate. Using a small cone trace some thin lines to look like string.

*figs cultivated in an hilly area (200-400 meters above sea level) in the province of Cosenza, Calabria, in southern Italy. They are harvested in autumn and dried for 8 days in the sun, to avoid mildew. This natural process allows their later safe storage and winter consumption.
