Celebrate Fig Season

Fig season is here, so get ready with these two easy recipes

Here are two recipes to get you excited for fig season.

I got so excited when I saw fresh figs in the grocery story yesterday, as it meant it was time to make my Fresh Fig Bundt Cake, one of my favorite new recipes from my arthritis cookbook.  Also, diabetic-friendly and high in potassium and fiber, this moist lus cious cake has it all.

Now, if you are one of those that turn up your nose to fresh figs, this cake will instantly change your mind.  The recipe is from Eating Well to Fight Arthritis and I honestly couldn’t wait to include this recipe in a cookbook to share with you.  Fresh figs are perishable, and because of that they say 90 percent are made into dried figs.  A fresh fig is lusciously sweet with a slight crunch making them unique and delicious.  You may use dried figs or dates, however, this is one of those recipes that calls for fresh.  So, go to the grocery and pick up figs and if you like pizza, you will really enjoy Fig, Caramelized Onion, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Pizza with my cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen.
