Yup, sure did, and yes, I can share the recipe too.

1 lb. of dried figs
1 cup water
1 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup salt
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp. whole cloves
1 tsp. whole coriander seed
1 tbsp. dried bitter orange peel

In a dry pan, toast the spices until they are very fragrant then turn 
out onto a cool plate or pan. Do not burn the spices, the spices are 
left whole, do not grind them.

Put the water, vinegar, salt and the whole spices in a saucepan and 
bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Put the figs in the brine 
and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, cover and let 
cool. Refrigerate and serve.
