A Culinary Delicacy

Purely Figs (01) by MeetaK


I absolutely adore Figs. They are a culinary delicacy par excellence. Part of the wonder of the fig comes from its unique taste and texture. Figs are lusciously sweet and feature a complex texture that combines the chewiness of their flesh, the smoothness of their skin, and the crunchiness of their seeds.

Growing up I used to eat figs like others eat apples and ever since my sweetest Ivonne chose The Beautiful Fig as her theme to this months Sugar High Friday these luscious fruits have come into fashion in the blog world.

I had a great time with my figs - created a few great dishes and recipes and took some great photographs. Hope you'll come back on the weekend to see what I was busy doing with them. In the meantime enjoy a couple of the photos. I find them rather drool-worthy ;-)

  9. Your figs look gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you've done with them. We have a big, beautiful fig tree in our yard. Unfortunately, we gobble them up so fast, there are never enough left to make a recipe!
