Fig newtons are one of my favorite Fall treats. I always have plenty of fig preserves in the Fall, thanks to my beautiful fig tree. If you like store-bought fig newtons, you will love this homemade version!
I still remember the first time I had strawberry fig preserves. It was when I was in my twenties and worked at a women’s jail. One of the older ladies that worked there always made preserves and different types of jams and brought them in for everyone to enjoy.
It’s Fall, my favorite time of year! We don’t get much Fall weather in San Diego, but I still like to partake in Fall activities. One of those activities is making preserves. What says Fall more than apples and pears?
The greeks call this dessert Galaktoboureko, in the Middle East it’s known as Kahi. No matter what the name, you’ll call it delicious. Seriously, how can you go wrong with fillo dough layered with butter and filled with custard?
