Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Figs baked with honey and lavender

    • saladdays on September 09, 2012

      This recipe has long been a favourite of ours and comes into its own in the fig season. It cooks in a low oven and is difficult to overcook so makes an easy dessert that will cook while you are eating the main course. Try to use fresh lavender if you have it in the garden.

  • Fig jam

    • saladdays on August 19, 2018

      This is the first time I have made fig jam, our tree is producing plenty this year. This is a basic no fuss recipe, converted Ibs and cup measurements into 1kg figs to 500g sugar (about 20 figs) and it made 1 Le Parfait 500ml jar with a bit left over! Not much for the effort involved but it is delicious. Now I know why fig jam is expensive to buy!
