Vegan MoFo Day#21-Peanut Butter & Fresh Figs

fresh figs are amazing.even without peanut butter.they're definitely my second favourite fruit,after bananas.
they're SO sweet,and fruity,and special,and juicy,and special again because they're so delicate,expensive,and only available for a limited amount of time.but when you get them,and they have that little syrup running out of the top,and are super plump and's like heaven.
SO,of course,they're a natural partner for peanut butter.eating fresh figs spread or dipped in straight peanut butter is like taking a spoon full of peanut butter and jam and sticking it in yr mouth.but more exotic,and with seeds.
please try it.
i love dried figs,with peanut butter aswell,but that's s different story for another post.

oh i love figs! the figs in portland are so freakin' gigantic compared to the ones i am used to in new orleans. i don't think i ever had a fresh fig until my thirties, so you are ahead of the game, rayray.

i think eating so many fresh figs at isa's back in june was what made my bowels explode and stomach die when i was helping her move.they were huge.and so so so good.
i can't believe YOU waited that long...i've been figgin it up since i was 15 in 05!
