Black Mission figs are one of my most favorite types of fruit. I had not seen any around my area for...forever. When I saw that Trader Joe's had brought some in, of course I had to purchase. Brought them home, mouth drooling, opened the box and plopped one into my mouth.
If you have never had Black Mission figs let me tell you what they taste like....sweet, sweet, with a tad crunchiness, due to the seeds.
But these figs were nowhere close to being sweet.
Not an ounce of sweetness!
Instead they were tasteless!
I placed them in the fridge ( they are prone to becoming moldy very quickly). They sat in the fridge for a couple of days, and then I popped another one in my mouth.
The second time around, it tasted better, but not quite what I remembered them to be.
So what to?
What to do?
Take photos for the 365 challenge.
Photos it is!
To be honest I am not totally thrilled with the photos either. The light I used for the side illumination, was harsher than I wanted and I just couldn't replicate what I had seen in my mind's eye.
Therefor these will have to do 😉.
