We laughed about eating as many as we picked. They are tempting when the skin begins to crack and you know how sweet they will be.

Miss Winnie said her Mama always sugared figs and let them sit overnight. Old-fashioned fig preserves had equal parts of sugar and figs. I just add enough sugar to make a light syrup and freeze my cooked figs rather than canning.
Last year I experimented with recipes for various fig treats. Mostly I like to just eat them right off the tree. During the winter, figs we put up are a treat at breakfast with buttered toast.
