Morabah-e-Anjeel (Fig Preserve)

2 lbs. ripe figs
2 tablespoons baking soda
2 quarts boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Wash the figs.  Put them into a large pan and sprinkle the cooking soda over them.  Pour the boiling water over them and let stand for about 2 minutes.  Pour the hot water off and immediately pour cold water over the figs to complete the blanching process.  Drain.

Place the figs in a large pot.  If the preserve is to close to the top, it well go over.  Add 1 cup of water.  Let it cook for a while until the water starts to go down.  Add the sugar.  Simmer until a small amount of thick syrup is left, about 45 minutes.  Remove from fire and stir in the vanilla.  Put in sterile jars and keep in the refrigerator.
