    I’m very lucky to have a big ol’ fig tree in my back yard. I just finished my annual harvest and have dozens of figs in my freezer.

    Another great resource for fig recipes is Under the Fig Leaf by Sherri P. Lee. I’ve made several items from this cookbook, and they’re all delicious…she works them into salads, main dishes, drinks, and desserts. Often I just keep it simple and throw one in my morning smoothie. It thickens it up in the same way a banana does.
