Turkish figs with Serrano ham – a painting a day

Day One hundred and twenty eight  –   a painting a day

The figs are very pretty cut in half and lovely with some Serrano ham.

A few leaves of curly endive or fancy lettuce in a strong but slightly sweet dressing would be perfect with this. Not that I can get the endive easily here. I should try and grow it.

The ceps are moving around the woodland or rather the pattern of fruiting is changing. The best area previously was very sparse but we found another which was in full production. The drying routine is getting to be just that, a night-time routine, an easy mindless chore.

The quality of the ceps is phenomenal some days. They dry a pale creamy white and are good enough to eat like that, also the thin dry slices will crumble into scrambled egg and soften without soaking to make the most delicious scrambled egg imaginable.

I looked at the Tigridia plant and it is doing what they almost always do- producing a second flower, I will try and get a picture of this next time.
