Fig Pudding: Bring it Out Here!

We’ve heard clamors of song for it. And certain houseguests won’t leave until they get some. So here it is: the recipe for fig pudding. You’re welcome.

Figs are available almost all year around. These teardrop shaped fruits are known for the sweet, soft, chewy, and subtle flavor. Figs have an unpredictable character; their taste and texture all differs drastically depending on the fruit’s exposure, season, and general environment. These unpredictable mysterious fruits are well known for their health benefits; they are high in potassium, high in good carbs, and high in fiber. The best way to mask their unpredictability is by making dessert!
