One Ingredient – The September Round Up

OneIngredient-September FIGS

It definitely feels like Autumn now compared to the beginning of the month. The mornings are cooler as are the afternoons and the days are getting shorter. I must admit to being much more of a spring and summer person but I can cope with what is on it’s way as there is still plenty […]

One Ingredient for September – FIGS

OneIngredient-September FIGS

Welcome to September’s One Ingredient post. It is great to be back after a summer of sorts. Not our best but goodness knows, it has meant the allotment has gone absolutely crazy whilst me and my family took our summer holiday in France. The ingredient I have chosen for this month is FIGS.   Figs […]
