  • Breakfast this morning

    Sorry I didn't think to take the interior shot of this LSU Gold . It was great and very similar to the 1st one we tried back in mid July that I did show the inside below; ripe banana and tropical fruit combo with mild crunch. Along with a few RdB and fresh cinnamon raisin toast we were good. Thanks Clark, for sharing this great fig with us. I also got to grill a couple of figs for the 1st time after dinner. The were Florea and were nice, mostly sweet flavor but interesting texture after grilling a bit.Click image for larger version

    Grilled bacon wrapped figs would make an excellent appetizer.

      Sounds like a wonderful combo, but we don't eat meat, ceptin' for the occasional garden insect.

        I think it was in my dad's house when we were cleaning up, I'm pretty sure there was a collector in the family at some point, but not sure who. I've had it about 40 years of it's long life.

          A little oily and with a hint of war brewing
