Black Mission Figs, dextrose.
Figgy pudding is a traditional British Christmas dessert that goes back to Shakespeare’s time. In this version, the common rum or sherry-soaked fruit is replaced with a purée of rehydrated figs, dates and water, adding important moisture to the finished product, while grated dark chocolate adds complexity.
