Although a dried fig may never recapture the juiciness of its ripe state, try this for a winter dessert: start with fat golden Turkish figs, and simmer them in honey and sweet wine, along with thyme and coriander. In the herb-scented syrup, the figs become plump and succulent.

Serve them in small portions—a couple of figs per person is just enough. This method works well with other dried fruits, especially apricots.
