I tried this fig recipe in early summer for the first time and it didnt turn out that well. Which is completly normal if you develop recipes but what I didnt know is that there are two seasons for figs so I tried the recipe again this autumn with turkey purple figs. Yes, the big purple figs are called turkey purple figs, I didnt know that either. They are bigger than other figs and have a harder skin than. Upon my research on the benefits of those beautiful little fruits there are quite a number of different figs, one being the black mission fig, calimyra figs, kadota figs and tiger figs.

Turkey Figs

Turkey Figs

All of theme have diffrent seasons, flavours and aperances. For this recipe you can use any fig that you chose, the only thing is that turkey figs are harder to glaze with agave syrup. While it looks great on the picture the glaze often times simply just runs past the figs.

The Beet Roots cake bater was a bit dry the first time around, so the second time I added more agave syrup and Beet Root Juice. I used freshly ground Beetroots but you can use store bought Beet Root Juice as well. I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you.
