This is a special request of those in the Annapolis
area. I need fresh brown figs! I have left a note on the neighbor's door, but I think they will only be able to provide about 1 gal of ripe figs by this weekend. I need 2 gals of figs to make my grandmothers fig preserves and from that I can make her fig cake.
Why is this so urgent? I have a friend that was diagnosed with cancer and treated over a year ago. The cancer is back and she starts treatment again. I have always promised her that I would make a cajun fig cake for her, but for the past several years her trees have never produced enough brown figs to make the preserves. Time is running out and I need source for brown figs this weekend! If you can help, send me a private message through the board or via cyardoin "a-t" gmail.
If you have a contributing fig tree, I will be happy to share my grandmothers preserve and cake recipes
or the result of my weekend cooking
