The Fig Adventures

My summer goal was to take advantage of these wonderful summer figs which grow on Tybee and find some great recipes to enjoy. As I rode my bike all over the island, I’ve been noticing some enormous fig trees bearing fruit! The challenge was would the squirrels and birds get the ripe figs or would I….. I managed to find enough figs to make a couple of delicious fig cakes with cream cheese frosting ( recipe came from the Southern Living cook book. My bike basket picture shows the fruits of my forging where I found several dozen ripe figs AND another bird nest that had fallen from the trees during a recent wind storm.
