Late Summer Meanderings

    First Fig

      MY CANDLE burns at both ends;
      It will not last the night;
      But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends--
      It gives a lovely light!

  1. Soon it will be time for Heart of Darkness - a heady concoction of Black Mission figs, cocoa nibs, & cinnamon, some magic thrown in, and then you'll be all set to enjoy this with shortbread, jam tarts, chevre, or on a cheese plate. You might even consider using this as a base for homemade Fig Newtons!
