This recipe was one of life’s very happy accidents where all the planets aligned! I was shopping for dates and picked up dried figs... now I’ve never been one to cook with figs, ever! I love them savoury but for some reason I’ve never thought to use them as a natural refined sugar free sweetener. That was, until this fateful day!
