Fig & Mascarpone

incirli pasta-15.jpgAs far as I remember from my childhood, it is one of the first fruits I met. Probably, I was trying to reach the branches of the fig tree in front of our house. So far, they have been an important human food for many thousands of years. It is the fruit mentioned most often in the Bible, and was said to grow in the Garden of Eden.
There are many varieties, some green-skinned and some purple – like this one – & some with bright red interiors. The fig is unusual in being more flower than fruit. The main body is a fleshy flower base folded in on itself, with an open pore opposite the stem, and inner female florets that develop into small, individual dry fruits that crunch like “seeds.” #Fig
