Happy Monday

Tis Fig Season again here! Actually to be specific it is the season of Bajtar ta' San Gwann (the big purple soft figs) will be cooking some with a tiny bit of port and orange zest tonight (have eaten so many raw that I think its time to try out other methods). The season is only about three weeks long and there are not so many days left... you know what I am planning next- but of course - Ice cream! So we can savour the taste just a little longer into summer. There are actually three different fig seasons here in Malta. So this most likely won't be the last of my posts on them (Tin).

  8. Holy crap, that fig is huge! We're just starting to see some beauties here in Sicily as well!

    Have you ever grilled your figs? With some rosemary and ricotta? Whoa mama!

  9. I have never tried a fig! Perhaps I should go and hunt some down at our local supermarket... (although I'm sure they won't be half as good as the ones your eating!)

  13. I am headed downstairs right now to have a few of those very same figs. I have never seen such big figs before...a Sicilian friend picked some from her tree for us. What delicious treasures! Thanks for giving me a heads up on the three fig seasons. I had no idea.
