A creamy, sweet ricotta tart brushed with honey and decorated with fragrant fresh figs.
Years ago, in my high-school years I always looking forward to the beginning of the school year.
There was something that made me look forward to the end of summer.
Something that was way better that all the summer vacation fun.
It wasn’t the thought of my upcoming birthday, definitely not the endless list of homework, but the fig season.
I don’t remember when I had the first fresh fig, may have been in my childhood but I remember as if it was yesterday how I would check the big fig tree starting middle August. The moment one fig would turn slightly purple I’d eat it.
It was my end of summer pleasure.
I was so in love with these sweet fruit.
I was so sad when I had to leave town for college.
Now, years later I’m still looking forward to the fig season.
We do not have a fig tree since the deer in my neck of the woods don’t let me grow anything edible but I’m always looking to buy some from the Farmers Market each Saturday.
I’ve been meaning to make a fig treat for a while now but most of the time they are eaten by the time Tuesday comes around.
But in the same time I didn’t want to lose their pink color while baking or cooking them.
