behold, the fig

Fresh ripe figs are one of life's finest pleasures.  Unfortunately, finding a perfect ripe fig is no easy (or cheap) feat.  I've had the best luck at farmers markets.  They are great plain.  They are pretty exciting with some aged balsamic vinegar.  And they make a nifty appetizer with some goat cheese.  One fig has about 30 calories and are surprisingly filling (due to the high fiber content).
