Did you know my friends that figs and lavender are good friends? Well, needless to say, that lavender is well paired with many ingredients. You cannot argue about this.

But talking about both these wonderful things, there’s something weird…if not say sinister, going on this September.

Weird Things

To start with, the lavender in our garden has started blossoming again. In September. When its blossoming season is the end of June – end of July. To clarify this, saying that all the lavender we’ve got is blossoming would be a lie. There are just a few flowers. On the other hand, I cannot say we had more lavender blossoming at a time in July either. So it’s kind of a weird yet exciting event.

Another strange thing is happening to my food buddies. Figs have been missing this September around them. First Cheyanne mentioned this outrageous fact. Then David confirmed the same.

I told you: eerie things are happening!

Friends in Need…

This has to be stopped. That’s why I decided to give a hand Chey and David.

At first, I thought to send some fresh figs to them. I even bought a large box of beautiful, delicious, meaty, silky, and velvety figs to ship. Then I thought: “Who needs a large box of beautiful, delicious, meaty, silky, and velvety figs?” Besides, I have sent a number of food parcels to the USA, and so far none of them has been delivered. It must be an issue on the border.

Ricotta Fig Lavender Crostini

Recipe! What could be better than a dedicated recipe? The recipe for this Ricotta Fig Lavender Crostini is way better any fresh figs. Figs might be gone in seconds, but the recipe will be staying for years.

So, I am solemnly dedicating this Ricotta Fig Lavender Crostini to Chey and David. Hopefully, sooner or later (better sooner) they will find some lovely figs and try this deliciousness. Just don’t hesitate to ask for some lavender if it’s missing too.

Moreover, I will be dedicating to them other fig recipes I tried (thinking about them) last weekend. Because I am a good friend.

  1. Hahahahaha! Fabulous post Ben! And thanks for the shout out/dedication! So you are telling me not only do you have an endless supply of figs you also have a crazy supply of lavender?! I am officially jealous. And I expect you to post ALL the recipes with figs and lavender. ;) This crostini is gorgeous, buddy! And I’ll bet it tastes even better than it looks!! Guess I’m just going to have to imagine the taste huh? :( Cheers, Ben and thanks again for the link love. :)

  2. Hahaha…great post, Ben! Figs are indeed almost impossible to find around here. I’ve seen dried figs everywhere, but dried figs aren’t the same for these kind of recipes. And I’m guessing that your lavender is flowing again because the weather has been so wacky lately. I mean it’s late September, and we’re gonna be in the mid-80’s (F) all week. That’s crazy! I’d gladly take a shipment of figs (or better yet a shipment of crostini) from you, but those crazy border guards must just keep eating all of our boxes. I’ve sent several your way, too…but none of them make it. Those guards are eatin’ well, I tell ya! :-) Thanks so much for the link here, my friend!

  3. Well, I didn’t know that figs and lavender are best buddies, but now I know. Thanks for this awesome info, Ben! :) Sending a fresh fig bag to food buddies sound like a genius idea, can you include me too, please? :) I take it a YES! :) This creamy and delicious Ricotta Fig Lavender Crostini is making me drool. Such a beautiful creation. What a lovely welcome greeting to the fall! :)
