I live in Dayton, OH which is about 45 minutes or so north of Cincinnati. Well, I consider myself really lucky because Cinci has a place called Jungle Jim's which is the best store ever! They have huge cheese, wine, dessert, meat and produce departments. Also, they have great selections of food from other countries. Well, I was on a quest for fresh figs. KARVY09 mentioned them a couple of weeks ago and TURBOGIRL mentioned them today. I've never had a fresh fig so wanted to check them out. Did Jungle Jim's have them?? Yes they did. I bought figs, dragon fruit, and lychees (a very nice little man peeled a lychee for me to try and it was so good!). I bought red chard and fresh beets. I will be in produce heaven for the next several days. I also picked up some lentil salad and chickpea salad and for dessert pumpkin pie hummus & cinnamon sugar pita chips...yum!!! I'm going to have to make the drive down there more often so I can try more great foods! Yay!
