    Could you dry the figs? My mother used to dry fruit on clean window shades laid across saw horses.

    When we lived in FL, we had a fig tree, we made the jam with figs and strawberry jello. It is delish!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I've been wanting to get a fig tree. I always love the green figs on cruise ships. It's the only place I ever see them. What is a good kind to grow in a backyard?

    I have Mission figs (the black kind) in the backyard and Kadota (green) in the front. Both are wonderful.

    I don't like the seeds, but I love blackberry cobbler. My Great Aunt served it at dinners and I could never find a recipe for it. I found one that reminds me of her. I've made it as a cobbler and used it as syrup and over vanilla ice cream. It works well for that too!

    Seedless Blackberry Cobbler

    4 cups heaping blackberries
    water to cover berries
    let berries come to a boil and boil for a few minutes to make juice

    put cooked berries through a sieve and mash berries, saving the juice in a large bowl.
    Put berry juice back in pan that you cooked berries in.
    Add:
    1 cup sugar to juice
    3 TBSP heaping flour
    1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter
    dash salt
    Whisk in and cook until slightly thick.

    Put pie crust on bottom of dish
    add slightly cooled berry juice
    put pie crust on top of berry juice
    sprinkle with sugar and slit crust

    Bake 375 degrees F until crust is golden brown.
    Serve in bowls with vanilla ice cream!! Wonderful and no blackberry seeds between your teeth!!
