Fig and raspberry crostata (Crostata de higos y frambuesas)




I love figs season but is  a really  short time,  like cherries, if you want to do something with them  must be in the moment.
 Figs appear near the end of summer.
Small or large are perfect.
Absolutely sweet.
I found the other day when I went to San Bernardo (the city's next from here where I live)
Buy two bags because here my family  eat in a moment like candies  and  for I know that Isaved the others to this crostata fig.

  4. What a pretty place San Bernardo appears to be Gloria. I noticed many people were wearing jackets. I guess it is beginning to get cool there as we are just starting to warm up:)

    Your crostata looks lovely Gloria. Oh how Marion loves figs! She won't eat raspberries though, she says they have too many seeds, lol...I, however, would gladly eat hers!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing...
