Do not agree with previous review as to being too spicy. I used only one bottle of wine, all the spices and halved cooking time and they were DELICIOUS. (had to add u few tablespoons of water to make the sauce less sticky to be able to pour over the baked crust. Am thinking of using the figs to accompany duck breasts. Mmmm.
Over-spiced if you stick to the recipe like I did. You could probably cut the spice in half and the flavor of the figs would come out more.
