          "You probably do not think about the leaves of the fig tree as one of fig's edible parts. But in some cultures, fig leaves are a common part of the menu, and for good reason. The leaves of the fig have repeatedly been shown to have antidiabetic properties and can actually reduce the amount of insulin needed by persons with diabetes who require insulin injections. In one study, a liquid extract made from fig leaves was simply added to the breakfast of insulin-dependent diabetic subjects in order to produce this insulin-lowering effect."

          Does anyone have some good fig leaf recipes? Sounds strange. My son breaks out in a rash when he is exposed to fig leaves. We learned the hard way when he helped me prune our fig tree.
          Thanks for the article, Scott. Interesting.
