Fig & Honey Cream Cheeseby fig + fauna farm on 07/15/12
It's officially the season of Figs ~ and luckily for us, the chickens are not yet aware of this. Mission, Brown Turkey and Kalamata figs emerge so quickly after these rainy days. I touch each one, feeling for the soft figs just before they fall from the tree. Inside, the taste is a maple syrup-like juice amongst the dainty seeds and tender fruit.
