I have been waiting for figs to come to the farmers’ market but in the meantime Whole Foods in Woburn is having a fig sale (50% off). Yes I bought all three kinds, Brown Turkey, Black Mission, and Green Sierra. Also bought a few Habanero peppers. Going to be some fun in the kitchen this weekend!
For lunch I am eating one of the baby pears I poached in muscat vanilla syrup last night along with a bit of Constant Bliss cheese from Jasper Hills. I need to dial back the vanilla and cardamom just a tad next time but the pear taste and texture was outstanding. Forgot to write down the variety so need to check with Wendy at Kimball Fruit today. Need to keep working on new webpage for food fun while munching on fabulous lunch. Webmaster’s pages go bare while I work on clients.
