Hi there! Can you tell me how to substitute dried figs for fresh ones in this recipe? Thanks!

I would soak your figs in boiling water for 20-30 minutes to plump them up, then continue on with the recipe!

Chop the dried figs and soak in warm water until they soften. Drain and use like fresh.
A bit of rum would not hurt.
