Fresh Figs

fresh figs

I have the good fortune to live above my Italian landlords.  This means I have access to amazing tomatoes, fresh basil, and most recently figs.  You’ll know an Italian’s yard by the immaculate rows of tomatoes in the backyard and often by the presence of these amazing fig trees. Now there are a million recipes for fresh figs but right now they are perfect and in my opinion best served in simplicity.

I simply quartered my figs and served them alongside chopped walnuts and drizzled everything with fresh honey. To die for!  Check out other great recipes to utilize these perfectly seasonal gems:
