Five Fantastic Fig Recipes
Did you know that 98% of the country’s fresh figs come from California? From Black Mission Figs with notes of cabernet to Kadotas with a kiss of sauvignon blanc, no one does it better than Cali.
Another fun fig fact: We’re blessed with two seasons! First comes “breba” season in June, followed by the “new wood” season in August. Figs were revered by the ancient Romans for their health and anti-aging benefits. That still rings true today, because ounce-for-ounce, figs pack more potassium than bananas and more fiber than prunes.
They’re the ultimate summer snack, but why stop there? We’ve got cakes, pizzas, margaritas, and more, and we’re getting figgy with it.
