You can also add it to one of your existing cookbooks
Succulent and dark, Turkish figs are perfect at this time of year. Poached in cardamom and rose scented syrup, they can be served warm or chilled.
The rose water has a strong flavour, so you will only need a few drops.
It will keep well in your cupboard.
If you prefer, substitute the rose water for orange blossom water, or add a tablespoon of orange flavour liqueur.
Instead of cereal, try serving this dish chilled with low fat bio yogurt for breakfast.
