Our friend Jane who lives in Cognac came over to stay for a few days. She bought with her some lovely figs that she had picked that morning from her gorgeous garden. They were whizzed to a puree and added to a fermentation of water kefir along with an infusion of raspberries.
These unusual mandarins – Citrus Miyagawa – are green on the outside though perfectly ripe and orange on the inside and are the first citrus of the season. They add a nice citrussy twang to the sweet dusky damsons.
