Greek Fig Jam

Fig trees are so generous! When the time comes to harvest this sweet little fruit, they are so many that you don’t know what to do with them, and you make fig jam! It’s so good on a piece of toast with a good cup of coffee! Add some when you are making Pork when you have a  wine and cheese party, perfect with Brie, so many ways to enjoy Fig Jam! I wish I lived in a country with all kinds of trees on my property year-round!

Spring and weddings


A winter treat and a very traditional Greek Christmas cookie Melomakarona is!A delicious cookie dipped in honey and spice syrup, a treat that can make us so happy, especially the young….. A traditional recipe that has proved that it can take the test of time!

We have so many recipes, every house, every village throughout Greece has a different version, like my grandmother used to say,every chimney has smoke, but it does not mean that every kitchen has something delicious to offer… the same with the Melomakarona, some you like and you ask what the secret is, hoping they will share, some you really don’t and can’t even finish your bite…

But this chimney has a recipe worth trying….
