Have you ever tried fresh figs before?
If you haven’t, I would highly recommend you to give it a go. The taste of the fig is super delicious, with its honey-like sweetness and subtle hint of berries and bursting flavours! The sweetness and seedy texture of figs make them great for creating sweet or savory dishes. In fact, one of my favourite breakfast dishes is pancakes with figs and bananas, lol.
Fresh figs are usually eaten raw and actually taste best when eaten straight off the tree. I am quite lucky to have my own fig tree in the garden! This time every year (between summer and autumn), there are loads of tender and ripe figs on the tree for me to pluck. Super cool, right? I also hand out some of them to friends and neighbors to share the love around!
The fig is also known for being a healthy fruit that contains a great source of fibre and is chock full of vitamins and minerals. Another reason to fall in love with all that goodness!
