And the fresh figs.
These pretty gems start to show up in grocery stores (and if you’re lucky enough, on trees in your backyard) in August. And stay for just a short while. So if you find them, snap them up and tote them home. You’ll find a variety of dark and light options, there are 6 common figs that tend to find their way into grocery stores. Most common in my area are Black Mission, Brown Turkey and Sierra. And while each of the varieties vary slightly in flavor, they are all nicely matched to a few basic flavor pairings, and all work nicely in this creamy fig and cinnamon smoothie recipe below.
