Pan de higo (Spanish Fig Bread) is a traditional way to preserve figs for the cold winter months. This artisanal fig bread is a specialty of Andalusia and in fact is not really a bread but more like a really dense figgy Christmas cake. Spaniards normally have it for Christmas, but in fact can be enjoyed at anytime and goes really well with all types of cheese.Print
