Fourth of July Figs


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.

omg that sounds amazing. Two nights ago I traveled all the way to Brooklyn heights to go to this cafe that had a ricotta, fig and honey sandwich. The textures were perfect and the ricotta balanced out the strong and sweet othertastes. It was worth getting out of my comfort zone of North Brooklyn for.
