WHAT A WONDERFUL FIGGY TREAT! After making this up several days ago, we have had it as a topping for ice cream & on a dish of homemade apple sauce, as well as over breakfast cereal, & IT'S GREAT however it's eaten! Now that I have a local supply of dried figs, this recipe will be made often! Many thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #34]
