      I eyed this recipe for several days before selecting as a tag in the Game Room. Now sitting here wondering why I waited as the results were divine and the dish itself was so easy to prepare. The wine, honey and cinnamon come together into a fragrant rich syrup that enrobes the fruit and gives a richness to the frozen yogurt. More importantly, it goes beautifully with the figs and enhance their own flavor and sweetness. This is the kind of dish which can easily double or triple to impress a crowd for an occasion or event. My one faux pas was that even after making a special trip to purchase them, I forgot to include the dried cherries. Oh well, I guess I'll have to make another batch soon.
