Louisiana Fig Season

This year's early crop is ripe and ready for picking! My parents spent the weekend out in Breaux Bridge collecting a batch of these luscious, honeyed fruits. The fig trees out there are derived from the one planted in my grandmother's old backyard.

Next step? Well, after sneaking a few fresh ones, I'm sure . . . canning the fig preserves. Tune in later this week for a description of that process.


  1. i'm going home to LA this weekend...this makes me want to get figs while i'm there!

  2. Call Pete and Claud! They've probably got a few left over for snacking . . .
