This is what figs look like. Well, what figs look like covered in sugar. Have you ever seen one? Not sure what all they go in...I know Fig Newtons, but not much else. Anyway, these figs are sitting in my dutch oven at home waiting for me to get home and make preserves. Fun, fun. It is a lot of work for very little yeild. But, they are free (my mom has a tree at her house) and everyone loves fig preserves. Don't they?
