Crystal + Rochelle
The California fig season is officially underway! These fragile, pear-shaped beauties are one of our favorites and between Rochelle and I, we are fortunate enough to have five beautiful fig trees to harvest from. Plump and mildly sweet, fresh figs are delicious in their natural state or can be added to an array of savory or sweet dishes. Below are a few of our favorite ways to enjoy fresh California figs:
Goat Cheese and Fig Toast
- Bread of your choice, toasted (we use Beckmanns bread from our local farmers market)
- Fresh figs, sliced
- Fresh chèvre
- Raw organic honey
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh thyme
Drizzle toast with olive oil, season lightly with salt and pepper and toast. Spread the fresh goat cheese on the warm toast, drizzle with honey, add a little pepper and top with fresh fig slices. Garnish with thyme.
Add this easy-to-make salsa to sliced, smoked steak for a hint of sweetness.
- Fresh figs, cut into bite sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- Fresh parsley, chopped
- Scallions, chopped
- Pinch salt & pepper

Mix together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over figs, add parsley and scallions and mix to combine. Garnish with blue cheese crumbles. Also, great on a steak crostini!
