I can't seem to find any old threads where anyone has done this, although I'm sure it has to have been done. I wanted to add a "spicy fig" hint to my winter warmer but missed the boat on getting fresh figs. I found some fig juice and now I'm thinking I could use the juice to create a spice tea, and then use that tea rather than water for boiling the priming sugar. The juice has 28 grams of sugar per 8 oz. serving, so do I just count the grams in the juice toward my total and add slightly less sugar than I'm supposed to? Is there anything I'm not thinking about? I just want a hint of fig, but will I get any flavor? The juice is not concentrate, just juice, should I do a reduction first?
Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.
