This year is a fantastic year for figs, we thought it would be terrible, but no. We have two varieties on our land green and black, I’m sure they have proper names, i think the green one is called a drop of honey (pingo do mel), locally anyway.
Just eating them fresh off the tree is pure decadance and really the only way to eat them. I have made some fig and lemon jam/marmalade stuff which is very nice. We found the recipe for this tart in a Nigel Slater book. Decided to make it with some very expensive ingredients. When I asked Rick what he thought of it, his reply was “I’m not sure”.
That is not the right reply
