Preserving the Season: Figs
Oh, beautiful figs! How we wish the season would last all year long. Fortunately, figs do make scrumptious jams and other preserved foods. Here are a few ways to capture the season before it ends…
• Figs in brandy – For boozy fruit that you can use in both sweet and savory dishes, try Eugenia Bone’s recipe at Edible Austin … or just fill a clean jar with halved or quartered figs, cover with brandy, and refrigerate.
• Fig chutney – Plan ahead and prepare this savory-sweet chutney for your Thanksgiving and holiday dinners. (It would make a fantastic host/hostess gift, too!) We like Culinate‘s recipe with vinegar, cranberries, and warm spices.
