… Instead of the usual ham and melon, with the melon we’ll make a mousse: peel it, put it in the blender, flavor with olive oil and chili; pass through a strainer and throw away the water: add 5 sheets of gelatin and let it cool in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Add Pecorino (sheep) cheese with spicy fig jam ….. and a healthy salad of fresh tomatoes and basil.
………….. and let’s go with the colors!

1 KG. Ripe figs
200 gr. sugar
8-10 hot chili peppers
½ cup balsamic vinegar
20 cardamom seeds
After washing the figs cut in half and put them in a saucepan with the sugar, chilies, cardamom seeds (I recommend nly internal seeds NOT the skins!) Vinegar and cook for 3 hours, stirring sometimes. Put the jam into jars while still hot. This jam is excellent on cheeses, with roasted meet roast. Warning …. It is VERY spicy!
