This simple and ancient recipe has been prepared for centuries to preserve the juicy and thin skinned Cosenza figs of Calabria. The figs are lightly baked, mixed with molasses and honey, wrapped in fig leaves, tied with straw, and baked again. If you truly want a savory fig experience, you can let this holiday go without trying these. The carmelized fig and flavors are irresistible with any pecorino cheese or soft creamy cheeses. Unwrap the whole fig ball or slice in half, remove the fig leaf and serve!
