FACT: I have figs AND beer. It may take me half the night to drink a beer, but I can put down figs like a champ!

I can't wait for my grandma's fig trees to be bursting with figs. She doesn't even really like them! I'll call you when I am swimming in figs. Unless I turn greedy. Which could happen. Yup.

If it weren't for that pesky distance issue, I'd be over to your place in five seconds flat with beseeching eyes and open hands (for the beer and figs).

Please set aside your innate greedy tendencies and consider contacting me when the figs runeth over. :)

You're on my short* list of people to call when I have loads of figs. I suspect the lack of heat this summer is delaying the ripening of the figs.

*so short you're the only one on it, save the love muffin I live with.

PS: RE: pesky distance issue
How about you find a graduate program in the Bay Area and forget about this silly moving really far away business?

Shit, you got me all excited! SF state has a potential photography degree.

I heart the sanctuary and my job too much to change course yet. Once I've converted a small city to veganism, then maybe. :) It's not a pipe dream, dammit!

I will build a small city and populate it myself if you are willing to veganize it. DEAL?

DEAL! You can be Supreme Mistress of Baking and Cooking and General Awesomeness. SMBCGA for short. The Pook will be your lackey and Hermione, your Queen.

Ha! I wish the Pook was my uniformed manservant!

(I had to edit to use my favorite Pookcon.)

Wait a minute! If you're including Pook and Herm in the population of my awesome small city than that means it already exists and you should be veganizing it and therefore NOT MOVING REALLY FAR AWAY NEXT YEAR!

If you were here, I'd give you some of my homemade fig jam. Yummy.

Yum, I think I would enjoy that immensely! Is jam easy to make?

It depends on what sort of jam you're making and whether you have the right equipment. Freezer jams are fairly easy and don't require anything but pectin and freezer safe containers. That said, I don't like freezer fig jam.

Proper canned jams take more work, and some specialized equipment. I have a recipe for strawberry jam with in depth pictorial instructions on my blog, here. Take a look there, and for fig, you would use 6 c of halved figs, 5 c of sugar, juice of 1 lemon. When the jam is almost done, I like to add 0.5 c of finely diced candied ginger for the last ten minutes of cooking.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
