Jam Fancy


  • A bottle of sparkling wine
  • Purée
  • Shortbread crumbs
  • 10–15 fresh figs (substitute with dried figs if not in season)
  • 5 dried figs
  • 20g chamomile flowers blended with castor sugar
  • 8 crushed juniper berries
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
Shortbread crumbs
  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 250g butter, at room temperature
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 300g plain flour, sifted
  • 90g rice flour, sifted


  • Combine ingredients in a small pot and simmer at medium heat until figs have collapsed.
  • Stew for a further 5–10 minutes until thick and glossy.
  • Turn out on to a baking sheet and allow to cool in the fridge until set.
Shortbread crumbs 
  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until just combined.
  • Turn onto a floured surface and knead until all ingredients have combined into a ball.
  • Wrap dough in cling wrap and put into the fridge. Rest it for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and begin the process of rolling out the dough. This is easily achieved by placing the dough between two pieces of baking paper.
  • Roll the dough out until it reaches a thickness of approximately 0.5cm. The thinner the dough the quicker it will bake.
  • Once this is achieved, place the rolled dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 190°C for approximately 20 minutes or until the pastry is lightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to completely cool. 
  • Once the pastry is cooled, break into small pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse until crumbs are achieved.
