I got a call from her last week that she had some figs already ripe and ready to eat. Usually they don't ripen until late in the summer, but with this year's crazy warm weather they were already prime for picking. She told me they were huge, some as big as lemons! I didn't believe her, so I had to see them for myself.
They were HUGE! Grandma said she has never seen them get this big before. I was more than happy to take a few off her hands!
Of course they are delicious eaten as is, but I wanted to try something different, so I found a recipe online for grilled figs.
I still have so many figs that I don't know what to do with them! But of course that's a good problem :) Next I'm going to try my hand at drying them in the oven and maybe making some fig jam. Thanks again, Grandma!
