I love keeping dried fruit on hand because they add so much flavor to both sweet and savory dishes. Plus they last forever so that's a bonus! I came across Martha Stewart's Braised Lamb Chops with Red Wine and Figs and couldn't wait to try it! I didn't grow up eating figs whether fresh or dried but as an adult, I discovered how yummy they are. They paired so perfectly with the red wine and vinegar and I just love the meatiness of the shoulder chops. I served them over rice to soak up all that incredible sauce and it was a simple yet elegant dinner!
