Gettin’ Figgy With It

Fresh figs topped with Blue Cheese, Pecans and Honey

If you’ve never branched out with figs, then you are definitely missing a scrumptious treat!  Figs are a mild, earthy fruit full of nutrients and texture.

And in case you didn’t already know: California Figs are ripe and ready at your local grocery store, usually between May and December.

This fresh summer dish is quick and simple and delicious served as an appetizer while entertaining guests before dinner.  Pour a chilled glass of chardonnay and relish the tastes and scents that this season begs you to enjoy.

Sharp blue cheese and toasted pecans top a halved brown turkey fig.  You could easily substitute black mission or even calimyrna and come out with the same, delectable delight.  The final addition is a drizzle of local honey to the crown that balances out all the flavors and pulls it all together.
