Usually the short fig season is over before I can think of things to do with them. I wait all year for the beautiful green figs to ripen. They come, I eat a couple, and then they are quickly devoured by the birds and Japanese Beatles. That's that.... and so another year I wait.
So now I have delicious fig jam, but another question begs answering. What the heck do you do with that much fig jam? Haha!
