Black Mission California Fresh Figs

Recommended Posts

I found fresh figs at the grocery store today.

 

They are unlike anything I have ever seen, they look like little plums.

 

They were so cute.

 

Anyone have a core recipe using fresh figs?

 

These are definately not the dried kind that I sometimes see.

I had never had a fresh fig until a few years ago. After I had several, I planted TWO FIG TREES! :bcb_up

 

They grew to be taller than our barn!

 

Now, at our new house I just ordered a "dwarf" fig that I might put in a container...which it will surely outgrow. :bcb_wink3

 

I just ate them off the tree. I see them in beautiful advertisements with dessert cheeses and nuts and wines...

 

:wave:

Sharyn- I've seen recipes for fig salad dressing and the like. I just bought my first thing of figs and they started to rot within a couple of days. We ate them raw. Just washed them and cut them in half. The only problem was it made our tongues feel "weird". Maybe that was just us! LOL :crazy:

I just had 2 ...the taste is ok but I do not like the consistency. They are too..mushy..I like my fruit a little firmer in the middle.

 

How do u make "figgy pudding" like the Christmas song?

 

LOL

I cut them in half and take a teeny spoon and scoop out the insides. If you pick one off a tree in the morning, they are COLD and delicious (to me). :bcb_smile

They should not be mushy. Soft, yes, and sweet but a light watery kind of sweetness.

 

Here is some information on fresh figs.

LOL I ate the whole thing, just washed it and bit into it, skin and all.

 

They were sweet.

 

The flavor wasn't bad

 

But they were just too mushy. I wonder if I can find something to do with them where they are supposed to be mushy..like stewing them or something.

 

I hate to toss them out but I dont think I'll be eating them as they sit now.

Be careful! They are delicious but they can do strange things to your digestive system if you eat too many...My husband ate 4 right from his father's tree one time!


Live, laugh, love and be happy.

I LOVE fresh figs!

 

I had some 2 weeks ago & ended up with a sore tongue as I ate too many!

 

I eat the whole thing, apart from the stem.

 

Now I need to try & find them on special somewhere.
