It is fig season! Yay! Well fresh fig season. You can find dried figs everywhere and anywhere. We are talking about the fresh, plump, juicy fruit (not the gum).
Did you know that a fig has multiple flowers growing inside of it? And SOME please believe that the fig was actually the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden - not the apple. WHO KNEW?
There are multiple different types of figs. I thought there was only one - the purple one, more formally known as the Mission Fig. You can find out more about the varieties here.
So I decided to stretch the limits. I bought a limited number, and I wanted to see how many recipes I could get out of my small supply. Stay tuned or you will miss the excitement!
