Every year around the Fourth of July the figs start to ripen. I picked 30-40 figs off of my tree in two days. They made the perfect appetizer for the annual Peasley Party. Quartered, stuffed with a little goat cheese, and drizzled with a peppered honey, these figs were a big hit at the party. A wonderful combination of sweet and pungent and hot and textures ranging from creamy to sticky to just down right succulent.
