My fig tree is as tall as the storage house at the back of the lot. It is as big as the storage house. I can only
reach about 7 feet to pick the large, luscious figs that are beginning to ripen to their sweetest. I COULD get a tall ladder and move it a few feet at a time around the tree to pick the figs. (.Don’t tell.)
JUANITA’S FIG BRUSHCETTA
l Baguette, sliced
4 ounces goat cheese
Fresh figs, sliced
Honey for drizzling.
Toast the baguette slices.
Spread with about 2 teaspoons or so of the goat cheese.
Place 1 sliced fig on each slice.
Drizzle with honey, to taste.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Try this with a Pinot Noir, if you like a red, or a Sauvignon Blanc if you prefer white. I also found a “fizzy” Portuguese white that will be nice with this recipe.
Let me know what you think of the wine choices, please.
