It's Bean...

I'm done the book.
That was a lot of work.

I'm beside myself with joy.
Super exciting and so very nervous.
I'm also beside a lot of figs.

So, because I haven't been able to share any recipes with you for what seems like forever..

Here is an easy one for a quick fig jam.
1 pound of figs
1/3 cup of port
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
options: the zest of half an orange

Quarter your fresh figs, put everything in a pot.  
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and boil gently for ten minutes.
Stirring often.
Serve on some delicious brie and crackers like I did.
So good.
Keep in fridge for 2 weeks.

What else did I find in the garden..

..edamame beans are ready.

..and what I first believed were sickly neglected pole beans...

..were not pole beans at all.

It's bean.
But not pole bean.
They are black beans for storing away.
