Fresh figs


I plucked these not five minutes ago from the tree in MFC's backyard. I picked as many as I could carry without a bag, and the front of my shirt is sticky with milky sap.

The sweetness is almost treacley, and needs to be tempered with some sharp cheese, such as my best friend here.

Last week, at the supermarket, I saw that figs were $1.49 a-piece. MFC! MFC! We are sitting on a goldmine!

Yum! Check out my recipe for fig salad, which I stole from Jamie Oliver then mutated so that I wouldn't have to pay him royalties.
