Figs Are in Season!

 

California figs are in season from June through September! Although different varieties of fig are available almost all year, fresh California figs are my favorite variety. I love to use them fresh in salads. But there are many ways to incorporate figs into your diet. I love dried figs in yogurt, fig preserves on top of goat cheese, and balsamic vinegar flavored with fig!

Enjoying fruits and veggies while in season is a great way to get the most nutrients in your food as well as save money! Produce is always cheaper while in season. Eat up friends and come back in a few days for hand dipped ice cream cones!~ Linda Spiker

  1. Would you believe I have never tried a real fig?! I would LOVE to though – they sound amazing! I never can find them around here but I might try Costco – they seem to ship more from over there and maybe they have some!

  2. Figs are one of my favorite fruits! I had a neighbor that had an amazing fig tree and they never ate the figs. I used to go “help them out” with it every season and the fruit was just…there are no words! Now I have to buy them at the store and sadly they’re just not the same 🙁 I really miss that tree!
