Recipe details

  • Fresh figs are in this recipe, but dried figs soaked and softened in brandy would work well too.
  • Silan, a date syrup has a texture like honey and Sesame Kingdom’s ‘date honey’ is made from 100% selected Medjoul Dates. A delicious Yom Tov treat that also happens to be vegan too!
