Very Very Very Good. I wish I had enough figs to make the full recipe. I cut it in half with no problem. I made 1 quart jar plus a couple extra for me which I made a baby green salad topped with these figs and goat cheese, drizzled the juice from the figs and drizzled some very light olive oil.Thank You for a wonderful recipe!
