Figs are funny kind of thing, well, not in the ha ha sense, but funny in the way that I never really knew what they were or what they tasted like. I was definitely not a Fig Newton kind of kid, not fun enough. But, now, my, oh, my – figs are such lovely delectable bites.
They’re delicious, not too sweet, full of flavor and pretty rich for a fruit, and right now they are in season… So, hello, don’t wait around too long, go and find some or make a delightful little snack – after finishing the blog 🙂
Some fig inspiration:
How amazing would homemade jam be? Then you could make your own homemade Fig Newtons!
Fig and Pig, Pig and Fig! Open faced fig and prosciutto sandwich? Molto bene!
Ooey, gooey cheese and drippy, sweet figs. Seriously, this is the kind of “snack” I’d eat by the spoonful. Is that bad?
This recipe is happening! Gluten free and figgy!
The piece de resistance! How stunning is this cake? What a beautiful finale this would be for a dinner party.
Have you tried figs, would you? Are you intimidated by this “strange fruit”?
