Too many FIGS!

Edythe's backyard has a beautiful fig tree which produces hundreds of big Turkish Brown figs each summer. Some are left on the tree, for wasps and rodents to feast upon. Many are used to create spiced whole figs, fig jam and fig newton bars for The Heritage Kitchen to sell at the market. Edythe hand picks each one of the hundreds of figs off her tree each summer and what aren't used for baking come to the market with her, where we give them to long time customers and sell, at a very reasonable price, to new ones!

My Sister's Potato Salad

It becomes clear that you know how to cook when someone can give you a list of a few ingredients and you know just what to do to create a delicious dish from them.

Yesterday I asked my sister for her potato salad recipe, which I tried recently and really liked. It is basic, but sometimes that is just what hits the spot, or rounds out the plate.

If you cook often, her text to me should be good enough for you too:

Red potatoes, onion, mustard, mayo, lots of egg, salt, pepper and paprika on top

Make sure you cut the potatoes in small cubes not big.

Damn good potato salad...
