I saw fresh figs two years back. OK don’t laugh at me. We don’t get fresh figs here at Madurai. So if you are like me, then this is the post for you. Just know how fresh figs look like. When on a road trip to Shirdi, we went to a small town Adoni in Andhra Pradesh. After visiting a temple, while we were walking back to the hotel, I saw these fresh figs in a fruit stall. I asked about the rate and it was so cheap. I immediately bought a kilogram of these cute looking fruit. Hubby and Sruti didn’t understand why I was so excited about this fruit. After returning back to the hotel, I washed and wiped a fruit and took a bite. It was so good and I loved it.
The next day I skipped my breakfast and had this fruit, remember I bought a kg of figs. Hubby and Sruti were not so interested. I had it for my self. And when it was over, I had to wait another whole year to get it. Can you understand. I have seen so many desserts using fresh figs but I couldn’t try them as I will be returning home only a week later and they will surely spoil.
The fruits are greenish in colour and when cut open the colour of the fruit is an awesome peach. It is very sweet and tasty and can be used in lots of bakes and desserts. We get dry figs and I use them in my bakes but compared to the fresh fruits they are not that good.
I took this snap when on road trip this year. Even this year I bought a kilo of this fruit and skipped my breakfast the next morning. Is this called as obsession?? Didn’t even have a knife so had to just split it open. It looks good, Right???
