Some customer 5 star reviews

"Lovely little jars of loveliness

Also fantastic on porridge, especially on a cold winter's day. But don't let the sun stop you trying them. The tiny figs are soaked in a well balanced syrup containing white wine and rum and flavoured with cinnamon and citrus. Delicious."

These make a great desert with a little mascarpone. The syrup can be used in cakes and compotes. No wastage in this jar."

Baklava Inspired Sticky Figgy Pastries

Method

• Pre heat oven to 180°C.
• Grease a square baking tin.
• Melt butter in a pan or in the microwave.
• Layer 6-10 sheets of filo pastry in the bottom of the tray brushing each one with butter first.
• Drain 200g of the figs and keep the syrup.
• Chop them roughly either by hand with a knife or in a small magimix until a thick jam like paste. (If it feels too thick add some syrup to it as needed).
• Roughly chop the walnuts and pistachios and mix into the chopped figs.
• Spread the mixture over the filo pastry base.
• Place a further 6 sheets of filo pastry on top of the jam mixture buttering each one as before.
• Score across the top layers creating a diamond pattern.
• Place in the pre heated oven for about 20 mins and then turn down to 150°C and bake for a further 30 mins being careful not to let the top burn.
• Meanwhile make a simple sugar syrup by mixing 300g of granulated sugar in with approx. 250ml of water.
• Bubble over a medium heat until the syrup is completely clear (approx. 20 mins).
• Once the pastry is cooked remove from the oven pour the syrup over the top and into the slits on the top.
• Allow to completely cool in baking tin then cut into squares.

Serve with strong black coffee.

Use excess syrup drizzled over ice-cream or yogurt.
