boo~~ supermarket figs are a disappointment

jeniyo | Aug 11, 2009 11:30 PM

i got two big blister boxes of figs from a local market. while i was taking my train back home, i dug in and ate one. it was not the squishy sweetness i've remembered. WHAT HAPPENED?
the whole thing was only a *little* sweet, with a thicker skin and less gooey and seedy.. also the inside of the fig was lighter colored- it says "black mission" and it was expensive! boo!!!~~ =(

i assume it is just not ripe when they picked it off the tree..

soo... i'm trying to roast it with some sugar- meh~
roast with honey - not enough color development

will it ripen on the counter? i heard it won't work..

what would you do if you have some people over in a few days and you wanna serve them with some brie. original plan was to roast them and serve them with some whipped brie and crackers.

so sad, my favorite fruit, so sad... "_"

i miss my old farmer's market
