Am I the only one?

Am I the only self-proclaimed-pseudo-foodie that just doesn't like figs or capers? I think they're both nasty. Not only for texture, but flavor and aesthetic appeal. Figs gross me out. Just look at them. They look like a part of anatomy and have no business being on my plate. Ewwwwww.

I can actually stomach a fig newton once in awhile just because it's wonderfully disguised by an enourmous cakey cookie substance and they're mysteriously brown.

Maybe capers will grow on me.

I doubt it.

It might be just you. Cause I love them! My mom makes a real yummy dessert with figs and a great filet of fish topped with capers. In and additional a delicious brocolli rice. hugs, Vanessa

Oh my gosh! I hate capers too. Which is odd, because I love olives. Figs on the other hand, are quite delectable on a cheese plate.

Jeni,
I thought we were friends! Here I constantly write about my love of fresh figs (I just made a fig salad 2 nights ago) and about my goofy fig tree on my patio, and here I find out you hate them!! and capers too????
I am shocked and so sad....boo hoo.
