Earlier this morning I headed to town to our annual Vicksburg's Farmers Market looking for some tomatoes. I was able to purchase some and also ran into some friends who have a stand every year at the market. It was good to see Rosemary again who makes different varieties of pepper jelly and homemade jams with help from Joe Harrison. I bought a jar of lemon pepper jelly and blackberry jam. Lemon pepper jelly is great on a block of cream cheese with crackers. I also found some fig preserves made by Dogwood Hollow Farm of Seminary, MS.
When I was little we had a fig tree in our backyard and I was forever climbing in it and eating all the figs. I was also allergic to the milk that came from the stems if it broke and will develop a rash. One day, my parents cut the tree down and that was the end of that! I really love figs and look forward to coming to the market or any flea market to find some fig preserves...my favorite!
