About
1

The fig is an incredibly luscious fruit, with a delicate aroma and sweet flavor. Originally from Asia, figs are now grown across California and the Mediterranean and there are hundreds of different varieties, categorized into four main colors: white, green, red, purple and black. Fresh figs are around from June (desert region) through to early October. Go for plump figs that feel soft. At the peak of their ripeness they will have a faint bloom. If you buy slightly under-ripe figs, keep outside the fridge to ripen up. Otherwise, store in the fridge for a couple of days.

Add flour, and mix to combine. Wrap up and chill for a couple of hours. Four work surface, work out pastry to make it pliable but cool. Roll pastry out into a 3mm thick round, about an inch/2.5cm larger than the base of the mold. Lay over greased pan and shape into a tart shell; trim off excess pastry, lightly prick the pastry, and freeze.
