Figs

My Favourite Fruit

Fig is my favourite fruit, I love fresh figs to eat as they are, but also to have them in a salad or to garnish meat dishes.  My potted fig tree has 16 fruits this year, and today I harvested two of them.  They are small but I hope they taste delicious.

I have been very happy to have the potted fig tree, so far it gives me beautiful fruits, enough to harvest for the two of us.  It is not too hard to care for, regular watering and fertilizing are essential.

You could do so much with figs, dry them, poach and keep in syrup, grilled them and served with honey, and of course you could eat them fresh.

Serving the Fresh Fruit

Sliced fresh fig served with cold roast pork, and leafy greens-rockets, sorrels and fennel leaves, simply dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.  Delicious for Autumn meal.

Fresh figs don’t keep for a long time, enjoy while they are fresh and soft  So delicious, and delicate, they are the fruits for us all, the are the fruits for The Gods.
