While we were away our apples, nectarines and pears ripened. They were all gone by the time we returned.
I wasn't expecting any fruit to be left but our fig tree has yielded enough to make a double batch of fig paste - with more to come!
As much as I liked the lovely rounded shape of last year's batch (made by using small teacups as moulds), I thought a larger mould would be easier to work with.
While op-shopping last week I spotted this set of two mini baking trays. They seemed just the right size for fig paste production, so I handed over my $4.00 quite happily.
I used them tonight for the first time. Each is the perfect size to hold a batch of paste.
How good is that?!
