figs from my tree

there is something totally satisfying about growing your own produce – be it only a fig!

did you know that the fig was one of the first plants ever cultivated by humans, possibly as early as 9400bc.  figs were also a common food source for the romans.  i find that people either love or hate figs – i think that they are not only delicious, but one of the most beautifully formed fruits, especially once you split them open, that succulent rich colour and texture.

heres a simple recipe from nigella for a perfect fig dessert
