We love figs and when I say LOVE . . I mean . . I think we both sneak out to the fig trees and pick them and eat them when the other isn’t looking. As you might guess, since one of us works away from home and one of us stays home, there might be one of us getting a whole lot more sneaking time than the other one of us! 🙂
This year, for the first time, we’re finally getting enough figs that we both can eat all we want and we’re having a few left over. Yesterday after we both had our fill of figs, these were left over so I stuck them in the fridge.
We’re getting about 2 quarts per day now and should continue to get that many til the first freeze.
I halved some of the leftover figs and put them in a salad to have with our dinner tonight.
The salad had toasted pecans, cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, figs and mixed greens. That was a great use of the extra figs. I think I’ll do it again!
