There’s a lot of great summer cooking that comes with June and July, but August is when summer cooking hits the most delectable crescendo. This month calls for recipes to push the season’s best to take center stage.
Let’s be honest, the very best thing about August is the produce. It’s when peaches, plums and figs burst with perfection. So let’s lean into fresh fig season while we still can ‘cause it’s slow to arrive and quick to leave in our region. And with back-to-school looming over us all, it’s always a good idea to keep a short roster of simple weeknight dinners handy which is why we present our Mesquite Bean Glazed Chicken & Figs!! This harvest caramelizes so well with our Mesquite Bean Jelly even the figs that haven’t reached their optimal ripeness can’t help but drip with deliciousness. Try it and let us know how it turned out for you on our Facebook or Instagram page.
Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
