      Some people have long memories!
      Right now I'm looking for bundnerfleisch - it's a swiss version of the same technique

      Rita' Muenchner House in Fremont carries a commercial version fron Saag's at about $24.oo/lb - wonder if it's cheaper anywhere else

    2. They are going past season and the local markets (New Leaf and Whole Foods) which carry them are increasing their prices each week.

      Two weeks ago, I was buying them at $4.99 a pound. Then, last week, they were $5.99 a pound and just yesterday, I saw them at New Leaf for $6.99 a pound.

      No thanks.

        Organic Brown Turkey figs Monterey Market $3.49/lb, Berkeley Bowl $5.49 11/15/12. Sorry I don't deliver to Napa.;-)

      2. There are lots at Berkeley Bowl and West Berkeley Bowl. Prices vary based on type of figs and organic vs. conventional.
