If you buy honey in a squeeze bottle, it works great for this recipe. Or, if you have honey in a jar and it seems too thick to drizzle, heat it for a few seconds in the microwave first. Don’t heat it too long, or it will become runny.
Mission figs, also known as Black Mission figs, are purple-black in color and are a good choice for this recipe since they have very small seeds.
