I got an unexpected call from my mother-in-law over the weekend…she called to say that there was a fig tree outside my father-in-law’s office and it was producing more figs than she could eat~!  Would I like some?  YES~!  I mean, how many people do you know have fig trees in their yards in NYC??

So cute~!

If you haven’t tried a fig before..it tastes surprisingly a lot like a fig newton..just without all the sugar~!

So what do I mean fig, not fake?  I brought this tart into work and was offering to some coworkers, and most of them thought I was offering them “fake tart.”  Figs are a very underrepresented fruit.

This is a very REAL tart~! 🙂
