That looks so good! Would  I be able to use dried figs if I soaked them to rehydrate do you think?

Fig season is almost over here so I wanted to try some recipes with figs before its too late :)

zebraa hypothetically I believe you could but since I've never tried this recipe with dried figs I don't know about the right amount for conversion. Let us know if you try ;)

I was thinking about dried figs too. I have printed the recipe off and will have a think. It looks lovely and I want to make it SOON.

I love figs too and I have a tree, but it is a constant battle with the birds!  They sound great.  Good to keep you regular ! if you know what I mean?  ;) ;)

I think I might use the dried figs and leave most of the honey out. Will taste it and see.
