WanderFood Wednesday! Summer Sweets Fresh off the Grill
It’s fig season in Santa Barbara, apparently, judging by the small ripe figs coming off of my grandfather’s young tree. He’s immensely proud of producing the fruit, and just about had a fit when he saw what was on the menu for dessert on Sunday night: Figs! He was planning to bring one of the three precious figs to his nurse this week, and would not suffer Fig poaching on his property!
We tried telling him that these figs came from Costco, but to him… figs is figs.
These juicy sweet figs were a perfect light summer dessert, and so easy. You soak rosemary branches in water, then spear them through the ripe fruit and grill the skewered figs for just a couple minutes on each side. The idea is to heat them up so the fig infuses with rosemary. I like to finish them off with a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar (and goat cheese, and bacon if I have my druthers).
