    Swimming in Figs and Blackberries!

    Besides the usual yummy jams, does anyone have ideas for recipes with figs and blackberries?

    I didn't realize that figs were grown in this country. Always thought they were imported. Used to have a fruit cake recipe that took figs. Will have to look for it. If you are interested you can pm me.

    It's a jam recipe but it's my own invention.....I was making blackberry jam and didn't have enough juice for the last batch. Looking in the fridge and pantry for ANYTHING that might work, I ended up adding orange juice. About 3/4 blackberry and 1/4 orange or so. It was by far my favorite jam that I made!!!!! I was so sad when it was gone.

    My DGM used to make a jam using figs(she lived in FL) and strawberry jello that everyone thought was made using strawberries. Allrecipes has that recipe and a fig/spice cake that looks great with or without the icing. Let us know what you make.

    I wish I could come get some figs. I live in SE Georgia, this summer I made the Strawberry-fig jam mentioned above. It turned out awesome. I also made a fig filled bar cookie using the recipe for date bars and substituting figs. They freeze nicely when wrapped properly. good luck. gennie

    Figs freeze well.

    I'm jealous, A weird one-day wind took all our figs too early. Google "fresh fig cake." I can't remember which recipe I've used but it was delicious. (PS...After the little storm, my husband brought in oodles of green figs and I googled recipes for green fig jam....I ended up throwing them all in the compost bin. The jam was truly awful!

    Eleanor Burns has a good recipe for Blackberry cobbler on her web site. It is great. I freeze some berries every year to make cobbler at Thanksgiving time. A tradition my family has done for years.
