Chef Notes

It's recommended to marinate the figs at least a week before serving.
You can store figs in a dark pantry for 3 to 4 weeks, shaking occasionally. After four weeks, move to the refrigerator and use it within two months.
Greek yogurt, use brands that contain only milk and active cultures, like Fage.
