I get really excited when I see figs in the market. Practically giddy. Okay completely giddy. Since they’re only available for a short time I load up when I find them. With the first score of the season I always make FIG PRESERVES. This way we have them to tide us over until next season. This year I even planted a fig tree. I’m praying it makes it through winter and eventually will produce fruit. If not I may cry. Luckily I will be crying with fig preserves in hand if so. Silver lining people.
Then I can do fun things with the rest of the figs like top cardamom panna cotta with them and drizzle gobs of luscious honey on top. Yes those type of things. Good things. Things that you should do too.
Cardamom. Panna Cotta. Figs. Honey. You want this.
