- 2 cups light dried figs (Calimyrna or Turkish)
- 2 cups red wine, such as Merlot or Pinot Noir
- Zest from one organic orange (optional)
Place figs in a glass or ceramic bowl and pour wine over to cover. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours or up to 1 week, until figs are soft and plump. Drain and toss with orange zest, if desired.
