O Give Me Some Figgy Pudding... Figs

Okay, so it is NOT Christmas season and I don't really know what Figgy Pudding is, but...
Hello figs!

I grew up eating these little gems when my grandmother made them as preserves.  They were dark and syrupy and to be honest I always thought figs were brown on the vine.  Of course, they do turn a tan color but I did not realize the that brown color comes from cooking them.  I also did not realize that you can just eat them straight off the bush.  They are incredibly sweet and tender.  No one at my house truly has come to appreciate them, but I hope to see that change as this season's figs begin to ripen.

Do you like figs?  If so, how do you like to eat them?

  1. I know this may sound crazy, but I don't think I have ever tasted a fig....lol. My neighbor gave us some last year and I made preserves for James. We have a couple figs on one of our tiny trees already.
