It seems to be fig season here in Hawaii. I know this because I was handed a large bag of ripe right now figs, overflow from their tree that they couldn't keep up with. Since I seem to be the only one in the house who like fresh figs, I am now trying to come up with ways to use them up..which leads me to the next question...who the heck has heard of fig soup? Not as a dessert, either...as a main meal item. The people who gave them to me said they have been making it a lot, and that it was an Asian thing. I dunno...I can be adventurous in my palate, but my mind is boggling about this...has anyone had or heard of that before?
And, what else can I do with these sitting on my counter in dire need of using up??
