Figs

You know what's delicious? FIGS. Most American children only ever eat figs when they're in that nasty cookie, the Fig Newton, and never discover the true joy of them. I think that this is a crime. Figs are delicious.

Eat them. Eat them raw, roasted, or seared in butter and honey.

How do you sear in honey? Slice in half, then squeeze honey over the open flesh. Get the little suckers caramelized in the pan, then eat with cheese, bread, abs cured meats such as prosciutto or salami!

Figs are fantastic little autumnal/winter fruits that you should enjoy.
