When figs are in season, roast them up and make roasted figs, blue cheese, and walnut spread to wow your guests, or just treat yourself.
Can you believe before last week I had never, ever tasted a fig? Well, that’s not entirely true. I’ve had fig newtons, and that fig jam that comes in a jar and you get at the fancy cheese counter. But I honestly couldn’t say what a fresh fig looked like until the other day. And now I have a bowl full. Hooray for tasting new foods!
