Tickle Me Figs

It's that time of the week again...

Want to know what it's all about,
click here.

I love figs!
They are one of those things that I never seem to tire of.
Fresh ones are to die for.
Bare naked...yum!
In a salad...delicious!
Wrapped with prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic...coma inducing!

The trouble with the fresh ones is that they aren't
around at the markets for very long.
Then I'm stuck with the dried ones...
which are ok for cooking with but not so great for snacking.

Then I found this...

It comes from Turkey and it's fabulous!
So fresh tasting and not too sweet, just a hint.
It's great on toast,
a dollop in plain yogurt,
and the other night with a little brie cheese and a baguette.
Did I mention, I love figs?

So that's what has been tickling my snacking fancy this week.

Want to see more,
then head on over to my bloggy friend Sarah over at

Tickle Me Tuesday posts!

Happy Tuesday!

I haven't had much experience with figs outside of a Newton, but wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic sounds wonderful! And I bet that jam is delicious :) Thanks for linking up!

I have never ever had a fig. I'm kinda scared.

I've only had one fresh fig and I loved it! A friend brought some to work from her tree. She never brought any after that.

My husband can't understand my love for figs but I was born on the Italian island of Sicily and it would be un-Italian not to love figs or olives.
My younger sister has an orchard in Ojai California and among the rows of miniature tangerine trees she's scattered many different types of figs. One summer we went from fig tree to fig tree sampling the different types and flavors...it was like paradise. :)

Dare I admit that I have never had a fig?
