Figs, Figs and More Figs

A funny thing happened this week. On Tuesday, one of my interns, Nora, brought me a bag of fresh figs. Yum!

On Wednesday, another intern, Laura, brought me an even bigger bag of figs. I made a fig tart!

On Friday, I had had lunch with my friend, Madonna. Guess what she brought me a shopping bag full of? At her suggestion, I peeled and threw them in the food processor. I added a splash of lemon juice, a spoon of vanilla, and a squeeze of honey, processing them into a delicious fig sauce. Try it over Greek yogurt for breakfast!

They look beautiful! Fig chutney - fig ice cream-
Fig bread etc. sounds yummy to me. My favorite is any kind of blue cheese on fresh figs.
I'm envious!!! Stay cool
