What are figs:

I admit, I don’t have that much experience with figs. They aren’t something I ate a lot growing up (read: at all). They aren’t something I use a lot in cooking. Until now that is. Holy smokes guys, I. Am. Obsessed. Figs are SO SO good!

If you don’t have a lot of experience with figs, you may not know that there are over 800 different kinds of figs around the world.  The most common here in the US are Brown Turkey and Black Mission. Figs are usually quite sweet and have a subtle berry taste. To learn more about figs, read this Perfection is a Fresh Fig article from NPR. 

Are great on their own, added to baked goods or salads but honestly, pairing them with a buttery cracker, goat cheese and a drizzle of honey is one of the absolute best ways to enjoy them!
