You aren't eating ripe ones then.
This makes absolutely no sense.
I am eating ripe figs. I can assure you that.
They have one of the highest percentage sugar contents for a fresh fruit.
After grapes, bananas, mangos, pears, apples...
Perhaps he isn't very sensitive to sugar. If so that is good information to know if you plan to continue cooking for others
Well you must have a very high sugar tolerance than. Fresh figs, when ripe, are amongst the sweetest fruits out there.
Pears, apples and mangos, from that list, are lower.
I just took issue with the fact that one needs a sweet tooth to enjoy figs. Doesn't anyone remember that I don't eat refined sugar or flour?
You are missing out.
But you are starting to sound a bit like those nice virgins who still take it in the pooper.
Go eat a beet.
What a waste
I think that's part of it, but Kwilk hit the nail on the head with the "you don't know what you don't know" comment. It'd be fine normally, but your other posts about not being interested in women of your generation because they are dumb and below you (you didn't say this, but color me stupid if this wasn't what you projected) and the whole wishing women really spent more time in the kitchen making better food than the norm really does paint a picture of incredible arrogance. And I don't think arrogance is a bad thing (god knows I am arrogant), but you show an ignorant arrogance. You want to look down on people of your generation? Fine, go for it. You want to award yourself four stars for your cooking that was all self-taught? Go for that too. But we all know that you're in your 20's, live at home with your parents, and spend all day prepping and cooking yourself dinner. In the end that's not the type of thing that will make me feel the need to respect you. This could be the same for others on here, but that's not for me to judge.
Beets are good. Even better when they are roasted with some soft cheese and a fresh baguette though.
