Friday Five - Figs

Figs are in season and this week, I just happened to let Kaitlin try them for the first time! If you don't know what a fig is or what it tastes like...well.. a fig is fruit and it tastes like a peach + strawberry combined. You can eat it whole with the skin and all, but for Kaitlin, I cut in half and scrape the flesh out for her to eat. Now, you can get them fresh..but when it's not in season, you can only usually buy dried figs.

Check out these really simple recipes..from savoury to sweet!

Fig-Prosciutto Pizza with via The Pioneer Woman

Fig Goat Cheese Pie with Basil via Always With Butter
Fig Tart with Caramelized Red Onion via Spoon Fork Bacon

Fig Ice Cream via Delicious Shots

Fig Jam via Kiss My Spatula

I don't know about you..but they all look so healthy and wholesome yet yummy! Gonna go get Kaitlin and myself a few more packets of figs before they go out of season. In case you were wondering where you could get them..I usually see them sold in packs of 4 in the supermarkets and wet markets.
