Calimyrna Figgy Jam

calmyrna fig jam

I don’t like to think of myself as a hoarder of jams, but rather a collector or a connoisseur, though my husband may disagree. One of the varieties I tend to stockpile is a fig jam. I adore the flavor, the little crunchy seeds — everything about it. So of course when I was blessed with a large shipment of fresh figs, I immediately set about making jam. You can use any fig variety, but Calimyrnas are particularly good; the green flesh becomes golden when cooked. This jam is delicious on toast and muffins. Recipe and photo contributed from Eating In Color: Delicious, Healthy Recipes for You and Your Family* ©2014 by Frances Largeman-Roth.

Watermelon Juice

I haven’t been on a bender since well before I had kids. But sometimes I’ll get “over served” at an event, or a new cocktail might leave me a bit more bleary-eyed than I’d like. That’s when I turn to this refreshing concoction. The melon and cucumber help to hydrate you, while the salt and mint aid in settling your stomach.
