Lately I’ve been loving anything to do with figs. My Pinterest boards are full of them. To me they are just the essence of fall fruit. Dark and sombre, reminding us that winter is coming, but at the same time purple and juicy, reminiscent of summer berries.
Figs as cake decorations, figs in salads, figs as party styling, and figs in other baked goods. Nothing is too tough for the fig to handle.
Figs in everything. It figures.
