Delicious! Like the previous reviewer, I preferred the figs to chopped--easier to spread on crostini and easier to eat. The flavors are lovely; the scent is as well. Jars of this would make a lovely gift.

I have just come on here to post this recipe and found you already have. It is delicious, a good food magazine recipe if I remember rightly? I have a photo to post which I will submit here also. In my version I cut the figs quite small as my family are not keen of big lumps of fruit. Flavours are wonderful and rich and is great at Christmas with all the cold meats and cheese boards.
