    I am going to try this with bacon. I’m hooked on Neuske apple smoked bacon from Wisconsin. I just found larger figs than what I used this weekend. Larger figs means more space to stuff goat cheese! I love the name Cheesy Fig Bombs!! Thanks Tom.

    Today, I picked three buckets full of Brown Turkish and Desert King fig and now I know what to do with them all! I’m also going to make Fig Ice cream, which will the perfect dessert to bacon wrapped figs with goat cheese!!! I can’t wait.

    I really don’t know of a more satisfying dessert. If figs were in season right now, I’d plan this for the super bowl. YUM!

    Swoon, indeed! Delicious!

    An abandoned fully laden fig tree is a crime against all things good. An unforgivable crime, some may say.

    Funny, I was looking up figs and found you. I’m on Vashon too. My fig tree is big. Do you have any suggestions for a fig picking tool?

      Hi Elizabeth, there really is no fig picking tool other than the picker’s gentle hand and some needle-nose clippers. You don’t want to tear the fig from the branch by pulling it as it will turn to mush quickly. You may need a ladder, and then snip above the fruit at the woody tip. Figs do not ripen off the tree, so pick when only ripe and soft to the touch. Good Luck!
