Figs are very topical as we go into harvest festival and our black and green fruit are bursting in their fullness in the autumn sunshine.
But what do you do with all this figgyness ripening all together?
There is only so much fig jam you can make! Figgy pudding seems to sit well on the stomach at Christmas time. So September is a touch early for stodgey food.
Fresh figs are interesting, so too are figs bottled in a dry white wine and (are ideal for up to three months or more) served with scoops of Nestlé vanilla ice cream. If you are fortunate or crafty enough to have made drying trays you can dry them in the open air through the day and bring the trays under dry cover on an evening and then packet and freeze them.
But I want something different. I want cake!
Oh Yum Yum and more yum- totally yumtious -go on give them a try!
