Sometimes you read a recipe incorrectly and totally screw up the whole dish. This was not one of these times. Fresh figs are in season now and I bought some gorgeous ones at the local fruit and vegetable market. I just couldn't wait to try them out on this recipe. Only when I got down to the nitty gritty of actually cooking the dish did I notice that the recipe called for dried figs, not fresh ones. "Too late," I thought, and forged ahead anyway. I am so glad I did. This recipe must be delicious with dried figs, but fresh figs really makes it sing! I gave the figs a whirl in the food processor and squeezed as much liquid as I could out of them before proceeding with the rest of the recipe. The figs, together with the apples, almonds and honey make this a perfect dish to serve on Rosh Hashana! Another winner from Dorothy!
