I was singing along at my daughter’s school Christmas sing along, as one does,
“…we all like some figgy pudding …”,
and wondering if I’d actually had fig pudding? I have had a fair bit of feijoa and apple crumble, but I think it might be time to re-explore the fig.
I believe the fig is a member of the mulberry family, ficus ciraca, sometimes claimed to be one of the earliest plants cultivated by humans, native in the middle east and western end of Asia.
This photo is a more savoury take on the fig, I’ll hunt out a figgy pudding recipe tonight!
