While I love my home state of Tasmania, it can be frustrating when it comes to some seasonal produce
I watch those of you who live in warmer parts of the country with your fresh basil gardens and lush, purple, glistening figs and I’m so jealous
I’ve made peace with the fact that I will never feature basil in my herb gardens and I’ve yet to find a source of figgy goodness nearby
In fact, my husband was working on a house flip once and there was a fig tree in the back yard that I was watching ripen with giddy joy
Imagine my horror when the property sold before the figs were ripe!
So, finding a lovely box of figs at my local grocer was cause for much celebration
I don’t think you can go past the combination of figs and goat’s cheese and I’ve simply roasted them and then finished them off with a lush drizzle of either honey or balsamic, depending on your preference
