      1/2   c            Orange juice
    2       tb           Orange-flavored liqueur
    1       t            Ground ginger
    2       c            California dried figs
      3/4   c            Chocolate chips
    1       tb           Milk
 
   Combine orange juice, liqueur and ground ginger in small saucepan.
   Bring to boil; add figs.  Simmer, covered, for about 25 minutes,
   until all liquid is absorbed.  Cool completely.  Melt chocolate wiht
   milk in top of double boiler. Holding figs by stem, blot each with
   paper towel, then dip in melted chocolate, coating completely.  Place

   NOTE: These figs stay semi-soft on outside, so to store, keep them
   separated.
