Fresh Fig Jam

Will Jones, a wonderful artist, sign-maker here, who has made many signs for businesses in Vilca has made this sign for me for over the gate! I’m official, Vilca Retreat Center!

 

Recipe of the Day – Fig Jam

The figs are ripening. And they are so good here! If you like strawberry jam, you’ll love fig jam. They’re so delicate, they perish within a week of harvest. Good to have your fig recipes ready!

Ingredients:

3-4 fresh figs
1 T. Lemon juice
Water as needed
1 T. sweetener: coconut nectar, Stevie , fruit or honey
1/4 tsp. cinnamon – optional
1 T. Chia seeds – soaked 10 min.

Directions:

Soak chia seeds in water for 10 minutes. Add all, except water, to your blender and blend quickly, adding water as needed. Eat immediately, or chill.

Word of the Day – nido – nest

Tip of the Day – So far it’s quite easy to make a business here, although things are changing. But for right now, put up a sign, be prepared, and you’re a business. Will says, A business without a sign is a sign of no business!”
