One of our favourite ways to eat fresh figs is a lovely and simple combination of goats cheese, roughly chopped pistachios and finished with a little drizzle of balsamic creme/reduction (alternatively honey and balsamic vinegar). Absolute perfection! This is also ideal as a salad with panfried and sliced duck breast, add some baby spinach and watercress and voilà ! An amazing dinner for two !
If you like green tea, you might also enjoy a cup of fig leaf tea! Pick and wash 1 or 2 fig leaves, pop a whole leaves into a teapot. We have heard fig leaf tea has many healing properties, including being beneficial for diabetes, lowering blood pressure and cancer.
