Yesterday I had my first taste of fig since last year...

And I must confess I havent stopped eating them since ????.

Here in the province of Aydın we are blessed with the most beautiful figs – Thanks to God. With Germencik a small agricultural town not to far from the centre having the most delightful.

This dish is slightly baked figs topped with walnuts, labneh (a sort of cream cheese), cinnamon and honey.

Not essentially Turkish but a celebration of its wonderful tastes ????
