I have lately been a little obsessed with food preservation. Well I guess it's that time of year. And, no this is definitely not a food blog. Like if you read about my little experiment drying figs in the convection oven, remember, experiment is the operative word. That was mostly disaster unless you wanted to pulverize the dried fruit and use it like wierd sugar or something. So when I finally lucked into a fig chutney recipe (thank you Terry Narva!) my world was made complete. Finally after 15 plus years I have discovered something delicious to do with the figs growing outside my door . I think one of the trick with figs is the riper the better. Stay tuned for more fig obsession.
