New recipe for members of The Sourdough Club:
MALTED SOURDOUGH FIG ROLLS
These sweet and sticky malted sourdough fig rolls are a great way to celebrate the arrival of beautiful fresh figs in late summer. We love to pair them with a salty, savoury British goat’s cheese here at the school, drizzled in honey.
Figs have long been a part of a Mediterranean diet and are a rich source of minerals, vitamins, fibre and polyphenols. But you don’t need to wait for the fig harvest to enjoy malted sourdough fig rolls: this recipe works equally well using dried figs that have been soaked overnight.
PLUS an article about the history and nutrition of figs
The fig (Ficus carica) is an ancient fruit tree going back to the beginnings of horticulture in the Mediterranean basin. Traditionally, figs were used for treating inflammatory ailments, including cardiovascular disease and respiratory issues. This makes sense when we consider their nutrient value.
