July and August are prime time for peaches, figs and raspberries. A fresh fig tastes like a mix of a peach and a strawberry! Even though Fig Newton cookies are probably the only figs most people have tried, they simply do not compare to the fresh fig. Treat yourself next time you see a fig tree that is ripe for picking. Most Cajuns are willing to share their figs! Comment J’aime ces figues!
