Alekos and Anna have two fig trees on their beautiful property and early this morning I was invited to pick fresh figs with Alekos. These beauties were ripe and juicy. Many of the figs had sugar running out of the bottom and were screaming to be picked- so we did just that!
Figs are great for people with high blood pressure and are packed with fiber and antioxidants. Because figs perish quickly they are mainly sold in its dry form. I have a large bowl of figs to work with so I am going to get busy with this precious fruit before it spoils.
I will be posting some fig recipes this week so if you have figs available to you in your area pick up a few and check back for some yummy recipe ideas :)
