If you’d ask me, exactly what my preferred meals is at this certain minute, my response would most definitely be figs. Despite having the ability to enjoy dry figs all year around, there’s nothing like taking pleasure in fresh ones, which nature produces at the end of a summer. They’re stunning produce due to their sweet taste with a soft pulp and fine peel. Crunchy seeds simply melts in your mouth and are best conclusion of a texture. To pick the figs with high quantity of anti-oxidants, pick the ripe figs with a good, fresh fragrance.

They totally remind me of my childhood, as back in the days my father would go and choose the best figs from the farmers market and I’d battle with my brother who’d get them first. If my mom got a hold of them, before me and my brother consumed them all, she’d prepare a scrumptious almond and fig pie. This time it was my turn, so I prepared one my way and brought her my version of typical almond and fig pie, which we both took pleasure in dearly.
