The time has come and the figs in the backyard are finally ripe. I didn't remember liking figs previously, but since I had so many growing in my backyard I had to try them. So this past weekend I settled down with Breaking Dawn and a few figs to try (as well as some other snacks just in case).
Turns out I like figs. Or at least I like fig fresh picked from my backyard. (I have a feeling store bought figs don't quite taste the same.) It's a good thing I love them because we have tons.
I probably ate 15 or so just over the weekend. And the boy's parents stopped by and grabbed a bagful for themselves. If I had to guess there's probably 20 or so ripe figs still on the tree, but twice as many that are still green. Looks like I'll have figs to snack on for a while now!
Anyone else a fan of figs? Or have any ideas of good ways to use the figs that doesn't involve me eating them straight off the tree?
