Poppy's seeds Mousse with Figs's Jam

I always love figs (that I was a child) and I was lucky to have my summer's holiday in the countryside, in the house of my uncle Miguel and his family who have a small farm with tomatoes, letuces,chilees, and plums tree, but the most big tree was a Figs tree, so nice with delicious figs, so always we eat them only how a fruit, sometimes we lunch and after we went to out and eat figs or others, we came from the city so he laughs of us because he gives us a piece of water melon and say, go out to eat the dessert, and you know the water melon how is, but now I thanks him all I learned with he and his family a lot of things and enjoy the simple life.
He had a little vineyard too, but is for other history, but only I say for first time I saw the bigs wood barrel where they place the juices' s grapes and they talk histories of people that had fall in the wood barrels.

Well, about figs when I begin to make cook's class I begin to make desserts with figs and I find so delicious, and you make this recipe with dry figs or fresh figs.

The poppy seeds is more new for me, and I love them in desserts and barbarois, are so light and with good taste, I like so.
