We then juiced it.

It's that time of year for figs-- actually it's a bit late. We usually are done with figs (and the rest of the garden) by mid-August. Everything is usually spent or burnt from the hot weather.
This year seems to be different, with the wet, cool weather in June. We actually had a spring for once is DC. There has only been one week in July (when we were out of town) where the temperatures reached 100 for multiple days. The cooler temps in August (mid-80s), has meant slower developing fruits.
Three 4-oz wide-mouth jars of figs, brown sugar, and lemon juice are done. I'm sure ill be making more as there are about a thousand figs still on the branches.
In fact I also roasted figs with Boursin goat cheese and prosciutto last night for dinner, along with chicken on our new grl!
