So, last year was a very good year for my fig trees (1 turkey & 1 either a celeste or alma).
- I canned figs.
- I canned fig preserves and strawberry-fig preserves.
- I made fig jam.
- I made fig jelly.
- I canned fig syrup.
- I made and canned ‘fig meat’ to use to make homemade
‘fig newtons’ (which I still haven’t done btw).
- I also gave ice chests full of figs away and what I
couldn’t give away I froze in gallon zip-lock bags.
Now here I am, nearly a full year later and I still have a freezer full of figs and the fig trees are already full/loaded with baby figs!
What’s a Manure Queen to do?
I’ll tell you what a Manure Queen does…. she googles fig recipes.
I found one here at Nancie McDermott’s blog that looked simple enough, so decided I had to try it!
Here are a couple of pictures getting it ready for the oven:
Figgy Goodness ready to combine with sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt
Ready to bake with plenty of steam vents
This sucker is in the oven for a little while longer, I’ll edit and add pictures of the final product after the timer goes ‘ding’!
DING! DING! DING!
Hot from the oven!
Hot & Bubbly!
Cooled just enough to get a slice!
Come to Mama!
