Grilled Figs with Homemade Lavender Crème Fraîche
Celebrate the bounty of summer with grilled fresh fruit! Figs are back in season, so why not dress them up with some fabulous lavender crème fraîche?
This is how I start fig season: I go to the market and buy a bag of green figs with rosy tips, figs the size of tennis balls from “the oldest fig tree in Chickamauga.” I take them home and stand at the kitchen island alternately dunking my fingers in sorghum and taking juicy bites of fig while singing "Figgy, Figgy, Figgy can’t you see…sometimes your ways just hypnotize me." And that’s a true story -- because I love figs. From that first bag on, I buy them every week anywhere I can find them.
