Who’s Getting The Figs First?

Who’s Getting The Figs First?

This week the biggest battle around our home is who’s getting to the figs first – me or the birds! We have a beautiful fig tree in our backyard and it’s loaded with figs! Hundreds of figs!

This week we have had about 3 ripen everyday! The kids have snacked on them but they were beginning to pile up!

We made these Cinnamon Salted Figs in the afternoon and then turned the leftovers into this delicious and easy BBQ sauce. Perfect for summer grilling!
