I love figs. Fig season in California runs from about late June to October. With the end of the season upon us, there are several varieties and endless ways to showcase these sweet, little gems. Varieties include Black Mission, Kadota, Brown Turkey, Calimyrna, and Adriatic figs. My mind is turning into a fig pit with the overwhelming amount recipes I’ve wanted to try this season.
One of my favorite (and simple) combinations includes pairing any variety (I used mission) with a sprinkle of feta cheese and a drizzle of local honey. Or try swapping out the feta for some crazy good goat cheese – I highly recommend this. This combination satisfies both your sweet and salty craving, leaving a flavor explosion in your mouth. It’s the perfect snack/appetizer or even dessert.
Figs are sexy.
