Figs, figs, figs!

on 05/08/2016

A few days ago, our big fig tree was producing the 1st new juicy ripe figs. We have a walled garden & last year, we didn’t prune it much, on purpose. This year, there are many figs up on the tree & we have had about 50 of them already! This breakfast was invented by my husband Peter. We also harvested our first fresh blackberries, also from within our walled garden! Check this delicious easy breakfast out:



It only has 4 ingredients in it & we ate it with a slice of toasted spelt bread with butter. Will you join us for breakfast? So, see it all up closer here:

Recipe: For 2 persons


(toasted spelt bread smeared with butter to eat, on the side or don’t eat it at all)

low-fat quark cheese, as much as you want, about 6 tablespoons per person

6 figs in total, about 3 fresh juicy figs, per person, each fig: stems & bottom cut off, quartered

12 fresh blackberries, about 6 per person

  1. Take 2 white breakfast bowls & ladle your quark in it. Place your quartered fresh figs on it, evenly placed. Arrange your 6 blackberries around it. Now, drizzle your favourite honey all over the quark, figs & blackberries, not too much because you want the taste the flavour of the figs & blackberries!

      Nee, ik moest ze ineens allemaal plukken. Ik had géén tijd. Er hangen er zeker nog 100 in de boom.
