Tonight while we were at the Farmer’s Market, the hubby asked if I was going to get any fruits and veggies. I said I’d go look, but I wasn’t planning on buying anything. As it turns out, the produce was so unbelievable that I had to buy some. First were the plump and firm grapes, then I couldn’t pass up the biggest plums and reddest nectarines I have seen all year. Then I saw them…figs!! Fresh figs are something that I have not eaten for at least 20 years.
My grandparents used to have a fig tree and my cousin Aaron and I used to climb the tree and see who could pick the sweetest fig.
They was a wonderful treat and just as I remembered.
