Recipe for Fig Pizza from Caromb

Hilda Stearn admits that Caromb was not always in her life, but she thanks her mother for getting her to visit originally.  Now, Hilda and her husband travel to Provence as often as possible (when work permits). Hilda who is one to make friends easily has befriended Carola and not just because she has some fabulous fig trees.

Here is what Hilda shared along with a recipe for Fig Pizza.

My good friend Carola has the most amazing fig trees in her garden. Twice a year they are laden with fruit and she has become something of an expert in creating new ways of eating this healthy crop.

Hilda tells us that this easy recipe now features on the menu of the pizza van in Caromb!
