I can’t think of a better way to say thank you than with Lambrusco-Poached Figs and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Thanks to you this little old blog is moving ahead to Round Two of the Project Food Blog challenge!
I know, I know! I should be in the kitchen working on something for the Second Challenge, but I am so darn grateful to all of you, that just felt I needed to interrupt my regular programming and do this! Besides I am just so darn hungry and my Cucina Italiana arrived today in the mail with a version of these figs literally screaming from the page to be made. Screaming figs are not a force to be ignored, so I am just going to have to wait a bit longer before I start on the Second Challenge.
And let me tell you this great news and that magazine came at just the right time. These are the very last of the figs from the tree in my neighborhood that I like to “poach” my figs from. There will be no more until next year.
But please don’t lecture me about “poaching”, as you know I prefer to call it urban foraging. Besides the folks blessed with that fig tree just let the dadgum birds eat all the figs anyway.
In my opinion that’s the real crime here. So please accept my “poached” poached figs as they were intended– as great big smack on the lips for supporting Sup!
