Ed, I understand you came to the Farmers Market on the Square, to take some pictures of the figs at Danny & Debby Burris' D & D Longview Farm stand and learned that I had bought all of them before you got there.

After I escaped with the bounty to Beautiful Joppa, my husband and I cooked and put them into 7 pint jars. Only 6 jars got processed because one went into the fridge to be eaten shortly.

These are the first Kentucky figs I have bought and processed. I may try my hand at making Fig Newtons - Maury Lewis
Wow! The jam in those jars is beautiful. Just as I was getting over the surprise learning that figs can be grown in Adair County, I see that entrepreneurship may be thriving. Can't wait for the Great American Fig Newton Bakery, the Fig Festival, and the State Assembly designating Beautiful Joppa the Fig Newton Capital of Kentucky.
