You have peppers and tomatoes. Sounds like salsa! Add some onion and a little cilantro and you are set to go.
I had to break down and buy peppers at the farmers market this morning. I have several beautiful pepper plants and ate the last underdeveloped serrano in my mushroom, peppers, onion tacos yesterday. No heat to it whatsoever but it did brighten up the mess with a little bit of flavor.
I'm afraid I've wimped out and kept out of the bug suit the past two days leaving the figs to the birds. I'll have to post a picture of what I do to avoid mosquito bites! It is intense.
Have a good weekend and drink plenty of water if you are exercising outside!
Figs I know nothing about. We just started our fig tree this year. But our neighbors have a huge one they don't even touch. Very sad!! what about some kind of fig jam?? I wouldn't have a clue how to make it but it sounds good!!
My garden is dead now. All the rain drowned the tomatoes and peppers. I still have a habenero, serano, and jalapeno growing but all the green peppers and poblano are dead. It makes me want to cry!! I had to pick all the tomatoes the other day. So I have a huge amount of green tomatoes trying to get ripe. They will probably all ripen at the same time and I won't be able to eat them all. Not enough to make sauce or anything.
This is a selfish thread. My fig tree is going gang-busters at the moment and as long as I can get out there before the birds have all the ripe ones each day we get about a quart of figs daily (if past summers are any prediction). I've tried making fig bars (ugly but yummy, but really, really ugly!), and I've canned cooked figs. My favorite way to have them is just halved as an edible garnish with whatever is for dinner. But I can't help but think I'm missing a great way to save, cook, or eat these. Any help?
