Choose soft, plump dried figs for this easy, healthy dessert. Very hard figs won't soften even as they soak.
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.
If you include the zest, choose an organic orange to avoid pesticide residues.
