Stuffed Figs with Goat Cheese and Honey


In my back yard when I was a young child we had fig trees and one of the trees hung over the barn roof. When I came from school my friend and I would climb up the tree on to the roof and pick the figs. I used to bring as many as I could carry for my Mom because she loved to make jam, put them in salads, stuffed them, and baked with them.
