I cannot wait when August and September come around here in Southern California. The fig trees are in full bloom, just for a month or two. We have two trees in the backyard and we get buckets of figs nearly every day and eat a ton each day. The best ones are cracked because they are so plump- those are the sweetest.
Naturally, I want the best ways to eat and enjoy these honey jewels before they have to turn into jam. Enter fig with yogurt and a few in-season pomegranates.
It’s a simple breakfast and there’s nothing much to it once you have all the ingredients.
Just another reminder to eat in-season and garden as much as you can. There’s nothing like going into the garden, picking fruit and eating it. It’s a natural feeling we all intend to feel every once in a while.
