The amber-colored Calimyrna, from California, is most common fig grown in the United States. This is the kind we've used in our recipe. Black Mission figs, which are a little less sweet, are also widely available.

Cook's Notes

Try this spread on crostini with goat cheese, served with cheese on a board with bread and fresh fruit, on toast instead of jelly, or in a peanut-butter sandwich.
