I have two green fig trees growing on the neighbor's property, a Friends church. I was given permission to pick the fruit long ago by the pastor, as they do not. In the past I have cooked the figs down into a thick jam-like syrup and made oatmeal breakfast squares. This year I wanted to make something different.
I decided to rework a zucchini nut bread recipe and use figs in place of the squash. Since these large green figs are quite juicy, I decided to peel and cook them in a slow oven to dry them out somewhat. You could also cook down until most of the liquid thickens.
The resulting quick bread was delicious.
Total Time: Including the drying, mixing, baking approximately 3.5 hours.
This moist, dark bread tastes great. I will be making more next season.
