A Word From The Cook

“Figs are both expensive and seasonal, so this recipe uses fig jam, which is always available. When figs are in season, throw a few cut up figs in too. You can also use fresh figs as garnish. Figs are meaty, rich, and sweet. This Fig Balsamic Sauce pairs perfectly with our Garlic Rosemary Lamb.
