Yummy Figs!

Fresh Green and Mission Figs

Fresh Green and Mission Figs

I have special feelings towards figs. This delicate fruit has a big nostalgia effect on me. Back in my childhood in my small Mediterranean village, I spent a lot of time with my brother, sister and my zillion cousins climbing a fig tree deep down my grandfather’s orchard. We played house on this tree but mostly we ate a lot of fresh green figs! These were pure happy and delicious moments. Besides my childhood nostalgia, there’s nothing like the sweet tingling taste and the beauty of a fresh fig. God is so good at designing fruits! Fig is actually known as “nature’s most nearly perfect fruit” because of its wide-ranging nutritional benefits: super high in fiber, calcium, iron and potassium particularly when it’s dried. Check this delicious in season Tartine garnished with figs that I recently had at Maison Kayser, my favorite UES brunch/lunch spot.
