The season for figs is upon us! And when I happened upon baskets of them at my local produce stand, I pounced! So excited to try my first fig recipe as I have seen them in so many delicious looking entrées, desserts and appetizers, I immediately gave a long-awaited-recipe-to- taste a try. And, ta-dah! Paired with some of my favorite ingredients, this decadent, yet simple recipe will leave your guests impressed and your tastebuds dancing for joy.

Did you know that figs have a short season, but conversation has begun about making it a season-less fruit here in the states? A couple of years ago NPR did a story on just this topic. Learn more about when to find figs at your local farmers’ market and much more in their article here.
