Figgy Butter

Since figs have been forming in overwhelming abundance outside my window, I decided to do some fig fetching with Meredith. It was time to create something special… Figgy Butter has only 4 ingredients and requires no sugar! To be served to charming friends as a side spread or glaze.


A few friendly figs figured it would be fun
to steam in a stew somewhere out of the sun
Twas the friendly figs fate
to meet up for a date
and the dates were not to be outdone
They spun and they spun to a rising boil
Far from their birth where they rose in the soil
The figs and dates knew
That this cinnamon stew
would be quite a fresh brew to uncoil
And so they were blended
Forever intended
to satisfy dimples delight
As their lives were ended
their purpose was tended
to serve a sweet sauce for tonight.
