All of a sudden, my fig tree is laden with ripe fruit.
I checked the tree last week and there were plenty of figs on it, but none that had even started to turn from green to aubergine. But here they are, ripe and luscious. A wonderful breakfast while sitting in the back yard, I eat them right off the tree, peeling them carefully instead of waiting to take them in the house and wash them.
Last night I made Figs Foster (well, there were bananas in it too). Tonight after work I figged out with these beauties smeared wtih Trader Joe’s Blue Cheese and Roasted Pecan Dip. Anyone have any other suggestions?
