This is probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever written. It combines few fresh ingredients (sour cream and figs) with few cupboards ingredients (Bramley apple sauce, granola, and honey). All together it makes perfect breakfast, snack or dessert. You really wanna try this.
Figs have been popular since Ancient times. Roman, Greeks, Buddha, and even authors of the Bible and Qur’an ate them. Those fruits called syconium grow on a tree or large shrub up to 10 m high. Figs leather is green to purple and the fruit’s size is 3-5 cm. Their season is right now – in September. With figs you eat also fibre, calcium, copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin K. The largest European producers are Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Greece.
I made up this recipe on our holidays in London. I wanted so much to make something so easy, you can prepare it even when you’re not at home. It’s just layers of ingredients. Photos were taken in London – Isle of Dogs (dessert) and St. Paul’s Churchyard (figs). If you had seen a girl shooting figs, it would have been probably me.
You can buy figs almost everywhere – e.g. 5 for £1 at Borough Market, 3 for £1 at Oxford Street.
