The Organ Grinder

This afternoon, Liam decided to try out a new recipe: fig tart with crushed almonds. Yum. As he ground the almonds, Liam asked me if I’d like a cuppa. I replied ‘I’d rather talk to the almond than the almond grinder.’  How we laughed.

What do you do with figs?

  1. Interesting Italian fact: In Italy, the female sexual organ is often referred to as the fig (“la figa”) … I guess there is sort of a resemblance …

    I personally, am not really into either one! ;.)


  2. soak dried figs in red wine and brown sugar for an hour until they plump up, stick a walnut on top then in the oven for about 20 mins until hot and the wine and sugar have gone thick. dollop of cream, taste like mini xmas puds.
