The Ultimate in Local Produce

I have a fig tree growing in my backyard (yes, I have a backyard. I live in Queens. That's what it's like here). I've been waiting all summer for the figs to ripen and now, that time is here!

Figs make a lovely snack. Maybe I'll cook something with them soon....broiled figs are really good. So are bacon wrapped figs. Or figs stuffed with goat cheese....ok, now I'm hungry.
