    So happy to find this as I l-o-v-e figs! I used dried figs as that is what I had. Can’t wait to have it on my toast! Do you know why WW has more points for dried figs versus fresh? Do you think since I used dried it would matter on points since it was made into a jam and they aren’t being eaten alone?

      The sugar is broken down in dried figs thatโ€™s why: I love figs too!!! So happy you enjoyed it: whatโ€™s the point difference?

        11 points for 10 figs so it came out to 1T=1 point-Blue.
