Figs!

Oh, my gosh, *three* different parishioners gave us figs from their trees! We now have about 6 pounds of figs, the green kind, in our fridge, and a couple more that we've been eating off of since yesterday. I think it's definitely fig pizza time. Also, I found a couple of interesting recipes.....a fig tart with custard, in a Deborah Madison book. I think I'll try to replicate the fig recipe from The Farm Cafe, stuffed with gorgonzola (I'll use Rogue Creamery's Oregonzola--dontcha love that name!) and a balsamic reduction. Paul says the figs were baked. I'll have to see about that.

If anyone has any must-try fig recipes, let me know!

I enjoy my Deborah Madison cookbook quite a bit! Well, I'd enjoy it more if I had a real kitchen and a garden!!
The figs sound yummy! So glad you can enjoy them.
