More fig paste!

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?!
