Figs plucked straight from the tree, plump, sweet and juicy, warmed by the sun. But if you have to settle, like me, for the ones from the supermarket this is a delicious way to put the sun back into them. A little honey and a sprig of thyme brings a real Mediterranean flavour to even the unripe fruit. Team that with a creamy honey and pistachio ice cream and give a last salut! to a wonderful Indian Summer.
