Having been at work Monday through Thursday, by today (Friday) the fig tree was laden with fruit. I picked about 12-13 lbs (6 kilos). About half of them went into the food dehydrator last night - which reminds me, I need to package those up now that they are cool.
The other half went into the pot to become jam. I cut them up into pieces, ending up with about 4 cups of cut fruit.
Since those were yesterday's figs, I picked a few more today. I saw a recipe on the Food Network site for baked figs with mascarpone, honey, and pistachios. I adapted it a bit by omitting the honey and using toasted walnuts.
