one of life’s treats


see the recipe below from the inadvertent gardener

Grilled Figs with Rosemary and Honey
(Serves two)

6 fresh, whole figs, trimmed and halved (I used Calmyrna, but Mission would be great, too)
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary

  1. Grill the figs over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once midway through.
  2. Divide between two plates. Drizzle one Tbsp. of honey over each plate of figs, then top each with a Tbsp. of the chopped rosemary.
  3. Serve. Eat. Sigh.

there was a fig tree in our next door neighbor’s yard that was HUGE – it must have been at least 50 years old – in fact, i think it was planted by the neighbor’s father.  anyway, it produced the most wonderful figs – and we would go crazy eating them.  i still think the best way to eat figs is straight off the tree, juicy and full of the summer sun.

i would love to grow one here in the hudson valley but don’t think it would survive the winters – sigh.

    Glad you like the recipe! And wow…see, your tale of the fresh fig tree sounds just like I think having one would be. Oh…how I want to have access to a fresh fig tree, even just for one summer. I probably wouldn’t eat anything but fresh figs as long as they were available.
