Summer 2014 in Retrospect: figs

Almost every time I’d see them on sale, I’d buy figs. They’ve been such a delicious treat with cheese, ice cream, scones or mac & cheese.

A couple months ago, I learned that what we think of as the fig fruit contains lots of little flowers (that stuff inside that has a sort of grainy texture)—weird to think that I’ve been eating a bunch of tiny flowers all summer long…

Then again, I also enjoy capers.
