Figs are an ancient fruit that can be enjoyed fresh, dried, fermented and cooked. The United States of America is ranked 3rd in world for production for dried figs with an annual volume of approximately 11,000 tons.

Sustainability is often a word that is used by clever marketers to promote an agenda to address the propaganda that the overpopulated world is running out of food due. With conventional crops devastating the environment, it appears that all we are doing is mining the land instead of farming it sustainably. In essence, in order to be truly sustainable, agriculture must be perpetuated so it can be productive year after year and generation after generation. The privately stated policy from the agro-chemical companies is market domination through contamination, meanwhile it is translated for the public as peaceful co-existence, when in fact there is no peaceful co-existence.

What’s red and orange and absolutely the BEST way to have a little cheer this Christmas and New Year’s Eve? It’s an organic “Mar-Tea-nee” of course! This featured recipe also includes products from The Organic View Radio Show’s “Best of 2011” nominations! I personally love my martini’s stirred, NOT shaken. Just a little gentle stirring is all that is needed to allow the flavors to incorporate. Evidently, James Bond didn’t appreciate organics the way my organic good food friends and I do.
