Fig and Goat Cheese Sandwich

Fresh figs are a delicious warm weather treat but they’re highly perishable so don’t buy them more than a day or two in advance (and be sure to store them in your refrigerator). When you’re ready to use your figs, try them sliced and served on bread with goat cheese, honey, black pepper, and greens for a simple and delicious summer sandwich.

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fig Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
