The Best Way to Eat a Fig

| July 26, 2015 | 4 Replies

The best way to eat a fig is with a hunk of goat cheese, draped in prosciutto, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with cracked pepper! Especially tantalizing if it’s a fig from your own tree! Sliced in half or quartered makes a perfect mouthful!

I planted my second fig tree this spring, after killing a new tree last year that I planted in the parkway.

Just planted brown turkey dwarf fig tree

After this rare July rain event last week, I noticed one of the figs was huge and ready to burst. I made a special trip to the store for prosciutto and goat cheese! The memory of this combination of flavors bursting in my mouth was vivid from a year ago. I wasn’t disappointed!

  1. Yes! Mine too! Something about the hearty flavor of the goat cheese, the salt of the prosciutto and the sweetness of the figs that blend in the most spectacular way in your mouth!
    I also ate my first fig the other day too! It was actually the third ripe fig on my tree but birds (jays I think) got the first 2.
    I am going to go look for more ripe ones right now, already have the goat cheese and prosciutto in the fridge… yum!

    That sounds wonderful Kaye. I wish that I could grow fig trees up my way. I guess that I will have to settle for those cold hardy fruits.
