And the Secret Ingredient is….

FIGS!

Delicious figs

Kim, from Ordinary Recipes Made Gourmet e-mailed me to ask if I wanted to host this week’s Blogger Secret Ingredient. Well, I couldn’t say no…I have a bad habit of doing that. What was I thinking???? Not only am I moving this week, my cousin is getting married on Saturday as well! Oh the trouble I get myself into.

I picked delicious, dainty figs because, a) I love them and b) they are in season right now. There are endless possibilities when it comes to figs. You can use all different kinds, salty or sweet, hot or cold, dessert, main or appy, fresh or dried….you name it and you can do it with figs!

Here are some random facts (via Wikipedia) about cute, little figs:

  • The edible fig is one of the first plants that were cultivated by humans.
  • Figs are one of the highest plant sources of calcium and fiber.
  • Although commonly referred to as a fruit, the fig fruit is actually the flower of the tree.

So, if you want to participate using Figs as this week’s secret ingredient, please submit your recipes. Be aware that I AM moving this weekend (Sunday through Monday), which means my computer will be disconnected for a time come then. I will do my best to make sure everything is done on time, but please keep in mind that things will most likely be a little on the late side.

You can either submit your recipe by commenting (below) and leaving a link to your blog post (your post should link back to this post, or to my blog) OR you can e-mail it to: elizabeth [at]guiltykitchen [dot] com

I’ll reply back to your post once I receive it.

Deadline: Please submit recipes before 9:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time) on Sunday, August 30th. There will be a round-up of everyone’s posts on Monday, September 1st (sometime later in the day). The winner will also be announced on Monday along with next week’s host site.

Your time starts… NOW!
