  • Fig food fantasies

    I decided to torture myself and look at photos of figs as food. Here are just a scant few that hit my fancy. There are so many more...

        Same here! But first there is blueberry harvest season. Win-win!

      We make pizza at our place using an outdoor wood-fired oven-it is simply the best- and the last few years I've had a small 'pizza garden' next to the oven where I grow some tomatoes, herbs; stuff we can add to the pies as we cook them or when they come out. I am excited to add a fig plant or two to this year's pizza garden and thinking of fresh figs on top of one of our crispy crusted pies, maybe with some stinky cheese and homemade pancetta.....

        Oh, man does that whole set-up sound good. I'd love to have an outdoor pizza oven. But with our extreme fire hazard and frequent droughts (SoCal), I'd be too uncomfortable using it. We've already had to evacuate twice the past decade because of wildfires. (Had to walk back in to water the plants!)

      Gina, is that whipped cream inside those figs? Looks really good!

        It might be Marscapone. It's great on figs.

        I believe it's some sort of cream cheese.

        add: Yes, probably Marscapone.

          I did a google image search of simply 'pretty figs' and those are but a few of what came up. Most were pictures of simple sliced figs, or cut in salads...
          I just choose the ones that were visually very attractive to me.

            On another note, if you want some good looking pics and recipes, get the book "fig heaven" by Marie Simmons. From the simplest form of enjoying
            figs to some really good meals, deserts etc. I got mine from Amazon.

              I don't have it, but it looks like a good book:

                i love these...
                but there is only one place that has them, and its 3,5 hours drive.
                i guess its not bad, (for some of you its an 8-9 hour flight)

                    Here is a picture of a fig salad I had while at an all inclusive in Mexico a few weeks ago. Pretty tasty.
