Oooooo a friend gave me a pail of figs yesterday, don't I have such wonderful friends. They were delicious. I ate some just fresh, but needed to do something with the rest before they were overripe. So I just added a little sugar, a tad of lemon juice and cooked them down, and canned them. Now I have some nice fig preserves, can use them on bread or in a cake. We will see what I come up with when I have a bit of time. I realized as I was putting them away that I hadn't taken a picture yet. So here is the picture of the last jar of figs that was sitting on my counter just waiting to join his friends in my cupboard. ...The joys of friendship are many.
