We have a fig tree in our backyard. Our last house had one, as well. Every year, I attempt to use the figs, but always fail. This year, I’ve already made plans to make a fig and honey cream galette, as well as a fig jam. I have yet to make either.
I’m not a huge fan of figs, but I feel really bad wasting them. Yes, the squirrels and the birds eat them. And yes, the fallen figs decompose and nourish the the ground around the base of the tree. But still. Why can’t I make at least a few fig dishes?
Does anyone have a fig recipe that will change my ways?
