I am getting the nicest comments about the fig preserves. For me, the combination of Mission figs with Yvonne’s heirloom limes and a little fresh ginger, splashed with brandy and cooked into jammy bliss really is had to beat. I use a dash of kosher salt in these as well, which enhances the flavors all round. Of all my own original recipes, this Fig/Lime/Ginger/Brandy and my Meyer Lemon Ginger Marmalade are my own two favorites. Well, at least until the next crop ripens. We hope to have more figs, so shoo the birds away and keep a basket ready.
