When they are in season you will find fresh figs in Corfu's Fruit and Vegetable Market. However, all year round you can buy Sikomaida (or Sikopitta) which are figs and wine must, flavoured with aniseed, pepper and ouzo, and wrapped in fig leaves. Traditionally, they are are dried in the sun. Sikomaida is sweet, but it's a fabulous meze with all kinds of spirits. It's almost impossible to eat a whole Sikomaida at one sitting, but they can be stored in the leaves or in a plastic bag, and will stay fresh and edible for up to a year. You can find them in a few greengrocer's in Corfu Town.
