It’s fig season again in Northern California!  These luscious, versatile fruits are starting to appear in the local farmers markets.

There are many varieties of figs out there, but only a few are common in California.   One of my favorites is the mission fig, which is deep purple in color and very sweet.  This fig has two seasons – one in July for about two weeks and the other in the September-October timeframe. 

Here is one of my favorite fig recipes using black mission figs – Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese and Serrano Ham.
