For the last week our trees have been producing lots of figs! They are here earlier than ever this year, we used to harvest them the late August/ early September, the last several years they have arrived mid-August. Hopefully we will have them for the next few weeks.
We are eating lots of figs and using them at Home Restaurants– on Wednesday we plan to serve them with Lamb Sausage and for dessert with a Pistachio Torte and a Chocolate Sorbet. Most are going to John at Big Bear Cafe– tonight on the menu there is a Purslane, Black Walnut and Fig Salad and for dessert a Chocolate Cake with Figs.
