Recipe by petlover

This is a recipe from "The Seven Species: Stories and Recipes Inspired by Food of the Bible" by Matt Biers-Ariel. This particular recipe is "complements" of Sharon Strauss. It is a simple appetizer that tastes so good!! Make sure you use only the fresh figs ( they are available seasonally in most supermarkets). The recipe in the book uses an un-toasted bagutte. I like the appetizer better on a toasted one . The Seven Species are the sacred fruits and grains grown in Israel. They are: Wheat, Barley, Grape, Fig, pomegranate,Oolive and Date. This recipe is from the Fig chapter.
