These are a few of the figs I picked from the trees at the community garden. I've been collecting a handful every couple of days and letting them sit on our countertop to ripen. I've been trying to collect enough to make some kind of recipe -- maybe a cake, a salad, or jam. I would like to bake a few and try them with gorgonzola cheese or prosciutto, but I don't think I'm ever going to get that far. I keep eating them all -- just plain! It's like having a plateful of candy staring at me everytime I step into the kitchen. Oh, I'll take just one. And then one more. And before you know it, they're gone again. Too good to resist.
