Every morning lately, we've been getting up early to gather the figs before the birds get them and pick the purple hull peas that are ready. Just today we got three gallons of figs that Margaret cleaned and put up for preserves. If you haven't had Margaret's homemade fig preserves on a hot cathead biscuit, then I would venture to say that you have never really tasted one of the greatest treats that your taste buds could possibly imagine. Now, that's not to say that I intend to share them. I'm just saying that it's one of life's little pleasures. Plus, if you don't know what a cathead biscuit is, then I just cannot help you. As the youngsters would say; "google it" or you could read my books where I talk about them quite a bit. Either way, I'll be enjoying hot cathead biscuits with fig preserves tonight.
