Do you know about frozen figs?
Now you do.
These beauties have started appearing at the market again, so get them while you can! Fig season goes pretty quick — there’s a short season in early summer and then another burst late summer through fall.
I discovered this cool treat when I was in Italy last summer. On a whim, I tossed a basket of luscious ripe figs in the freezer. Mind. Blown. The jammy sweetness freezes into an almost creamy sorbet-like texture. And then there’s that color. Hello, gorgeous.
Frozen grapes…pshhh…child’s play.
Frozen figs, grown and sexy.
