I have almost picked the last of the figs from the tree now. So I had to create a special dish with them that I haven’t tried before. This idea of making some kind of tart kept coming back into my mind and so I gave it a shot. And yes, it worked out well. I just love it when a recipe turns out well at first try Continue reading

There are so many recipes where a splash of vanilla custard sauce adds immensely to its flavour, e.g. my berry jelly.
