Figs - Lemon Juice .( Figs and Lemon).

Figs and Lemon juice is very refreshing drink. Figs can be dried and kept in summer and use it whenever you need it.
Figs help us to be healthy in a way. People who are  suffering from the himoglobin count in the blood cell , can have this drink regularly and keep themselves healthy. Pure  figs concentrate is available in Malenaadu ( Sagar - Shivmogga side in Karnataka ). You can get dried figs also here.
I have used the dried figs. You get a concentrate of figs in Sagar/Shimogga/Karnataka /India. They do collect the figs after it is completely grown and prepare the concentrate in natural way.
Figs are collected and soaked with sugar or jaggery and kept it in the sun. Figs completely absorb sugar and it is then turned as liquid. No artificial chemical added. The concentrate then filled in the bottle and kept it for using it. I was lucky to get a bottle of juice.

Things Needed :

Water : 3 to 4 cups.
Dry Figs : 10 to 12.  ( or concentrate : 3 to 4 Table spoons ).
Lemon : 1 Medium size).
Salt : a Pinch.
Sugar /jaggery/Honey :  2 Tablespoons or little more.

Method :

1. Wash and soak figs in normal water for 10 minutes.
2. Grind soaked figs with soaked water till paste.
3. Remove from the jar. Put it in a bowl. Now squeeze out the lemon juice and mix it.
4. Add honey or sugar and stir nicely. The Figs juice is ready to serve.

5. Put the Figs-Lemon Juice in to glass and add a piece of ice cube. ( I did not add ).

Note : Adding more/less figs is optional. Adding ice cube to the juice is optional. Adding a pinch of salt helps you to be on healthier side. ( It avoids getting cold). If you are using  Figs Concentration then do not add any sugar or jaggery. Use of Sugar/Honey /Jaggery is optional.
Time : 10 Minutes.
Serves : 3 to  4
