Recipe by cannedfood

Try figs in salads, desserts and fruit salsas – or as a fruit garnish. They tempt the palate with more than their trendy flavor; their small edible seeds also deliver fiber. Although fresh figs have a limited season, you can enjoy figs any time of the year; simply keep canned figs on your pantry shelf.
