The word I can’t help but return to when I am thinking of the fig and olive relish we served at our recent Father’s Day lunch.
For it is modest, unpretentious, and certainly exhibiting no ostentation in its appearance.
But, friends, being unassuming does not mean it lacks interest. In fact, if some of the most unassuming people can turn out to be the most interesting, I don’t see why a lovely little relish cannot deliver the same!
Simply – dried figs, kalamata olives, sugar, vinegar, fennel and cinnamon. Coming together to create the perfect blend of sweet and salty – and a wonderful accompaniment to the meat dishes we had on offer at lunch.
And, as we later discovered, also rather tasty when served with some crumbly cheddar and crackers.
Unassuming..yes…but also very tasty!
