One of my favorite fruits is just coming into season in the United States and Israel. Figs are one of the earliest cultivated plants with fossils found dating back to Neolithic times. Cultivation of figs predates barley, wheat and legumes. High in calcium, flavenoids and fiber, figs are not only super good for you but are also versatile and can be eaten fresh or dried.

This marmalade recipe is perfect for garnishes, for adding to your favorite duck or chicken dishes or jazzing up a piece of pound cake. I look forward to making this every year.
