I used to be delighted when my farmers market mates introduced me a basket of contemporary figs from their backyard. I would beforehand bought their selfmade fig jam and determined I would make one thing with the 2 elements.

Realizing I didn’t have wheat berries to grind for the flour, I reached for spelt berries. Spelt is a wide range of wheat extensively cultivated till the unfold of fertilizers and mechanical harvesting left it by the wayside in favor of wheat extra appropriate with industrialization. It can be utilized instead of frequent wheat in most recipes. 

Here’s the scrumptious entire grain convection I made:

Mix egg and baking soda in a small glass.  Stir into the halved oat combination.

Press combination right into a baking dish (roughly eight X eight) greased with olive oil spray.

Cut contemporary figs in quarters.  Arrange in twos throughout high of jam.
