Five Fantastic Fig Recipes

Figs

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.

    Just a very simple fig salad for two
    Plate a handful of arugula on 2 salad plates
    Quarter 4 figs and place on top of the arugula
    Sprinkle with some toasted pine nuts
    Make a dressing of 2 Tbs honey mixed with 2Tbs balsamic vinegar and spoon over salad.

    Yesterday at the SP store, I bought Spicy Tuna in Crispy Rice. It was mediocre. You could barely taste the tuna and the rice was doughy.

    I say this not as a complaint because I’ll be coming back. Yet it seems to me that something has been missing at this store. The soups are so-so when they used to be excellent, the salads bland, and the mac n cheese looks like it came out of a Kraft box. Maybe it’s just a phase.
