Honey Andersen's Fig fantasia

My fig tree is dripping with green fruit and I have high hopes of actually getting  them to ripen so I can eat them this year! These are some of the things I plan to do...


As many figs as you have to hand


I split them open, put them in a buttered dish and dribble some liquid honey over them. I then bake them in an oven at @ 180 degrees until they are just beginning to sizzle. Eat these with home made ice cream or custard made with your own hen's eggs!

Or make a pizza, with caramelised onions spread on the base, then scatter sliced figs, walnuts and creamy feta cheese on top.

Or, stew them in a lemony syrup with a vanilla bean and have them with yoghurt and a handful of nuts for breakfast.
