fichi e prosciutto
for mother's day i was given a fig tree. i wanted a white fig tree because my neighbor's have a black fig tree (and i pick it all the time.) the fig tree i was given was a kadoda. it is so beautiful. it produces the earliest fig of the season.
on mother's day i took my mother out to my vegetable garden with my grand daughter and son and let my mother pick the first fig. after she bit into it she said "this is the fig first fig tree your grandfather planted when we came to the U.S. from Italy."
in the photo above are the figs from my tree wrapped with prosciutto, surrounded by Italian cucumbers topped with gorgonzola. delish!
