Until a few weeks ago I can’t remember if I had ever eaten a fig before. Now they are one of my favorite fruits. Recently I have been making it a practice to eat as many local fruits and vegetables as possible and not waiting until I or some one else can get up to the States. Which means that I have been stepping outside my box of eating my regular spinage, romaine, apples, carrots and kale. I’ve been enjoying figs, pomegranates, yellow zucchini to mention a few. I found out that one of my friends has a fig tree and 6 pomegranate trees. Guess where I’m getting my fruit from now! She has more than she can ever use and is now blessing me with her excess. I decided to make a couple yummy desserts featuring these delicious fruits! The first recipe is a fig coconut ice cream and the second, a Fig Galette, a twist off of Kimi’s Rustic Plum Galette.
