CORTI BROTHERS SPICED WHITE FIGS from The Good Stuff
Last year Corti Brothers introduced Spiced Figs whose recipe came from Dick Graff of Chalone Vineyard. This year we had the same recipe made using white figs rather than black just to see how they would turn out. The figs were grown again on the fig farm of Harvey Correia just outside of Rio Vista in the Sacramento Delta region. Janet Macdonald of The Good Stuff again did the production following the original recipe.
Interestingly, the figs are slightly more firm than the black figs and are actually less sweet tasting than the black from last year. They are very aromatic and have a delicate fig flavor, reminiscent of Sémillon wine. They are meant to be sweet, but would also fit into a menu where you need a not too sweet condiment for ham and the like. There is not much to be had. Delicious with good vanilla ice cream. LIMIT: 6 jars per order.
