Whose idea was it to name those terrible knobs that arise on our feet after one of the most extraordinary vegetables in the world? What an insult.

I had my very first fresh fig just one month ago, can you believe that?
It was pretty good, though I've been hard-pressed to find a fruit that I don't like. The thing is, I think I prefer them dried! That chew and the concentrated flavor is tough to top.
