Plan B

When figs were in season, I bought a basket of them; divided them into sixes and put them in ziploc bags and into the freezer. Yesterday, I defrosted them because I wanted to slice them, stuff them with a blue cheese, wrap them in pancetta and bake them until the bacon was done for our open house today.

Alas... they are so juicy that they can't be used. The bottoms of the bags are heavy with water. The figs themselves are squishy.

Now I'm thinking ... water chestnuts smeared with blue cheese and pancetta wrapped... or... the hell with it anyhow!
