figs.

25 August 2011
Our Eastern European backyard is bursting with fruit. First, the cherries sprang forth. Then, the native fruits followed-- sour plum (small purple plums used in relishes), aloocha (golf ball sized, light green fruits prized for their flexibility in many recipes both sweet and savory), and the mushmellow (also small and round, but orange and full of a watery sweet flesh). And now? We have arrived at the moment where I literally swoon. Swoon. Swoon. Swoon. Two mature trees, bearing my absolute most favorite treat in the world.
