This recipe really saves the day when your figs are, to put it mildly, so-so. For example, slightly dried out, not sweet, or a little unripe. And you get magical aromatic soft and sweet figs. And what great juice it releases during baking. This fabulous, wonderfully aromatic sauce is also wonderful to dip a piece of cheese in. Brie, Camembert, soft goat cheese, and ricotta go well with baked figs.
