I did find figs, and tried this with shallots and a sprinkling of lavender flowers in addition to the basil. Delicious!

also...when you use figs, do you eat them with the skin on or scrape out the insides?

I just ended up with a huge bowl of small, unripe (green) tomatoes, but I don't think that they are zebra tomatoes. Do you think they will work for this recipe?

I am going to scour the neighborhood for a neglected fig tree...I'll let you know how it all works out.

As luck would have it, I just bought some raw figs yesterday. I will definitely try this!
