Fig Clafoutis

Such a simple and tasty dessert – those french are so smart!

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing
  • 2 c halved fresh figs
  • 1 c whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1Preheat the oven to 325°. Butter a 10-inch glass pie plate. Arrange the figs cut side up in an even layer in the plate.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the milk with the melted butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla until the sugar has dissolved. Whisk in the flour until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter evenly over the figs and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden and puffed. Let the clafoutis rest for 5 minutes before serving

Strawberry Shrub

Shrubs are so easy and so yummy! You can mix with sparkling water for a super refreshing beverage or spike it if you need something stronger. I used my own very sweet berries so I cut the sugar in 1/2. If your using frozen or store bought, I would increase it by 1/4 c.

1 c apple cider vinegar

1 c strawberries

1/2 c sugar

2 inch strip of lemon rind

Combine strawberries, sugar, vinegar and lemon zest in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 20 minutes. Strain into an airtight heatproof container. Refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours or up to 1 week.
