There are certain fruits and vegetable that appeal to me as much for their appearance as for their taste and nutritional value, among these are eggplants, or aubergines as they are called in France, and figs.
Their is something so luscious and sensual about a fig.
You only have to cut one open and taste the honeyed flesh to conjure up a wealth of imagined delights.
As for myself...these figs from a tree in the back garden will be used along with white wine and balsamic vinegar to form a sauce for braised pork chops ~ yum!
What is in your garden of earthly delights?
