Figs, walnuts, and chocolate

Always an arm’s reach and no cooking away from an excellent dessert, and most delicious when the figs are broken open and stuffed with walnut halves.

It’s what we had at home most nights when I was a teenager. Every evening dinner included a main course, a salad, perhaps cheese, and, invariably, yogurt — plain, with a generous spoonful (or two) of jam or honey. And when one (or two) yogurt(s) left us with a feeling of not enough, we grabbed the nutcracker, the figs, and procrastinated with dessert before getting back to our homework.

    For years I’ve stuffed figs with walnuts and a little anise seed as a snack, but have never thought of adding chocolate….brilliant!

    One feels like joining in that warm atmosphere around the table!

    Oh! but I did partake in it.

    Love, your mom.
