On my walks my son and I have been gathering blackberries, wild mustard, ramps and wild onions when we came upon a fig tree out in the woods. This thing is loaded with them. I never was a "fig newton" person, but I wont be able to pass up picking these beautiful fruit when they come into season. I started researching about figs and their nutritional information as soon as I got home and found out that compared to whole milk , figs twice the amount of calcium! Intrigued, I looked more into the fig and found some very surprising information on many websites about figs and why diabetics should be looking into adding figs and the fig leaf into their diet. Now I am even more excited about the fig and can't wait to try this out.
