I’m very pleased to announce that over the upcoming weeks I will be featuring some of Maggie Beers recipes using some of her beautiful staple pantry products.

In honor of Mothers Day tomorrow I thought I might start off with this little number….My Mum used to make Jam Drop Biscuits and Maggie’s Mum use to make this fabulous Jam.

I have never had Maggie Beers Burnt Fig Jam before – what a taste sensation ! This was a recipe that was one of her childhood favourites. Her mum used to always Burn the Fig Jam , not on purpose but because she was always distracted doing something !
Maggie managed to replicate the flavour for commercial quanties and I have to say its lovely.
You can purchase Maggies Burnt Fig Jam here at her online shop or at other stockists which are detailed on the website as well.
