Notes

One of the many great recipes from Cooking Light. This recipe calls for Calimyrna Figs. I don't know much about figs (beyond Fig Newtons). The only figs I could find at my grocery store were mission figs so I used them. I don't know how it might have changed the recipe....but as far as I know...it was fine, but that could be my fig ignorance talking. ENJOY!!!
