Dried figs

Siempre me estoy quejando: me gustaría que lloviera más, me encantaría vivir en un sitio más verde, ojalá pudiera vivir en Inglaterra. Pero luego vienen momentos como éste, en los que estoy más que agradecida por vivir en la zona más árida de toda España. Naranjas, almendras, dátiles, granadas e higos... Soy tan afortunada por poder acceder tan fácilmente a estos pequeños manjares.

I'm always complaining: I'd like it to rain more often, I'd love to live a in a green place, I wish I lived in England. But when it comes to times like this, I'm grateful I live in the most arid area of Spain. Oranges, almonds, dates, pommegranates and figs, I'm so lucky to have an easy access to these delicacies.

Dried figs
I've already eaten two or three

En realidad no me gustan los higos ni las brevas, para mi gusto ese crujir es un tanto desagradable, pero me encantan los higos secos, son mi fruta/dulce de Navidad preferido. Y si los abres y les metes una almendra saben todavía mejor, mi abuela me lo enseñó y me dijo que se llamaban "higos con embustes".

I don't like fresh figs or early figs, I find their crunchy taste somewhat gross, but I love dried figs, they're my favourite Christmas fruit/candy. If you open them and fill them with an almond, they taste even better, my grandma taught me this and called them "figs with tricks".

Un pariente vino de visita hace poco y me regaló una cesta llena de higos secos y almendras. Los ha preparado él mismo, secándolos e hirviéndolos para asegurarse de que no tienen ningún visitante (es decir, ningún bicho). ¿Delicias navideñas en pleno verano? ¡Guau! Ah, por cierto, están riquísimos, son los higos más dulces que he comido en mi vida.

A relative of mine come to visit and gave me a basket full of dried figs and almonds. He has dried and boiled them himself to make sure they don't have any visitor (a.k.a. bug) in them. Christmas treats in the middle of the summer? Yay! Oh, and let me tell you, they're absolutely mouth-watering, the sweetest figs I've ever eaten.


Dried figs
Mouth-watering! :-)~

A ver, ¿quién quiere chocolate cuando se te pueden quedar los dientes pegados con éstos? :-D
I mean, who wants chocolate when you can have your teeth stuck together with these? :-D
