Always looking for new fig recipes when I have a bumper crop like this year. This one comes from Tessa West in De Ridder, Louisiana. These are delicious on toast and Tessa's grandfather loves them on pancakes. I haven't tried it yet but I think they would also be good with pork. I've used it as a glaze on a simple "figgy" cake...delicious!
