My Mouth is Dripping... because of this Fig Tartlett

Figs are not only sexy, but they are one of my absolute favorite fruits! I love the crunch of the seeds between my teeth (they can have as many as 1,600 in 1 fruit!) and the almost candy sweetness on my tongue.

Beyond the delicious sensations in my mouth, figs are serious bites with benefits. They are an excellent source of potassium and can help balance blood pressure. High in calcium, figs fortify the bones. With more fiber than any other dried or fresh fruit, figs are great for digestion, can help lower cholesterol, keep weight in check, act as a mild laxative, and can protect against colon and breast cancer. They are like the absolute perfect little package.
