I have been enjoying my Farmers Market visits because I know there is a limit to the window of opportunity to enjoy figs and tomatoes as well as other late-season treats.I want to share one more fig recipe I know you will enjoy. McEvoy Ranch Lemon or Traditional Olive Oil will make all the difference in your enjoyment of these rich, ripe flavors.
