Third Sunday of Lent

I Will Be Filled with Excitement Like A Guest at a Banquet

Psalm 63: 5

Except as fig newtons, figs do not have the nutritional or religious significance for us that they had in Bible times, when they were an important part of the diet and when some people believed that they were a special gift from the pagan gods.

But we can add them to muffins so we can experience their taste and texture.

Use any standard muffin mix (or recipe) that you like. Substitute orange juice for all the liquid called for, and soak 1/2 cup of chopped dried figs (mission figs are good) for 15 minutes in the orange juice before mixing the muffins.

Mix and bake following package directions.

Serve them to your class, and enjoy!
