Figs............for two!


My two fig trees, which are actually still bushes at this point in time, are growing well.  Last year one appeared to be on its last legs, I thought for sure was not going to over-Winter.  It survived, and is now several feet tall with some very tiny figs popping out.  The other larger bush was where I picked just one or two ripe figs last year, before birds/squirrels grabbed the rest....................but look what I picked yesterday, a handful of pretty fresh, ripe figs.  Just enough to bake in the oven with butter and broken walnuts, then top with acacia honey and a dollop of mascarpone, for two special tiny desserts.
Next year, enough for figgy jam perhaps!

  7. Beautiful figs, Mary! Your dessert sounds delicious! I made quite a lot of figgy jam this year, again. It won't take long for your trees to start producing a LOT of figs I think.

  8. Your figs are lovely and look yummy. I do like figs. Sonoma California restaurant "The Girl and the Fig" does a wonderful salad with grilled figs, spring greens, pancetta and goat cheese. It is my favorite! Your recipe sounds delicious and I will try it too. Happy figging...

  10. Fresh figs were a part of my youth. We had huge fig trees in our yard and Mother made fig bars, fig jam, etc. ~ Sarah

  14. The figs look so good! I found a tree at my car mechanics shop which I never knew was there, so I helped myself to a few! Nothing like tasting something sweet and warmed by the sun!!
    Take Care,
