oh Baldie dearrrrr! I made this for my friend who is on an alkaline diet due to cancer. The recipe is perfectly alkaline and it is absolutely wonderful.
I did exactly as stated except I stirred in fresh baby spinach leaves at the last minute with the figs and peppers. WOW YOU ARE A GENIUS... and just brought some happiness to a brave cancer patient. Thank you so much.
I made this recipe for the Jewish holiday of Tu B'shvat, when it is traditional to serve foods from the seven biblical species, which include figs! Since one of my guests is a vegetarian,this dish was really perfect! I'm adding it to my holiday repetoire.
I made this today for my literature class. It was a huge hit all around. Thank you for a nice, easy dish. For those interested, I did everything to standard, but put it in my crockpot for about 7 hours on low. Dressed with the marinaded figs and cooked about 45 minutes longer. It was perfect!
