Absolute beauties aren’t they?
Let me warn you, this is a photo heavy post… but can you really blame me?
I wasn’t always on the fig bandwagon.
But with looks like that… I’m jumping on board.
Plum, succulent, sweet and straight up gorgeous.
They also go perfect with blue cheese.
Something about that pungent saltiness compliments the soft honeyed bite just so.
While figs go well on salads and make splendid jams, I prefer their texture with a bit of contrast.
A crunchy blue cheese smeared cracker seemed to do just fine, but the drizzle of honey took it just over.the.top.
They leftovers will soon become a naturally sugary reduction, to top roast chicken, seared beef or maybe a big fat juicy burger, just in time for football!
How do you like your figs?
