|Dried Fig Red Wine Jam|
This Dried Fig Red Wine Jam recipe uses dried figs instead of fresh figs. Dried figs are cheaper and easier to find. The fact that it is cheaper does not make the jam any less delicious, on the contrary the flavor could be more intense. This is my guess, I haven't compared jam made from fresh and dried figs.
This jam will go well with certain cheese, on toast, in baking, as a sauce to accompany certain meats or on its own. Anyway you have it, it will be delicious. It is sweet but not overly sweet, and the crunch from the seeds is a real bonus. The recipe is available here.

This news is specific to Sweden but this practice would well be happening in other countries.
Almost 100 tons of fake beef have been imported into Sweden over the past 2 years, and 70 tons has already been consumed. Fake beef is pork fillets that have been dyed pink to resemble beef. The meat was imported from Hungary and labeled as Argentinian, Hungarian and Italian beef tenderloin.
The problem was discovered by the wholesaler when the meat was returned by a customer who complained it was too moist. The meat was sent to the national food agency for testing, which found it was dyed pork.
I suppose Muslims who don’t eat pork would be pretty annoyed by this discovery, even though the meat they had was probably much more tender, and possibly delicious too.
I wonder if any customers who ate the pork raw, rare or medium got sick. If they didn't get sick it may dispel the myth that pork should be fully cooked.
The Dried Fig Red Wine Jam will go well with pork and fake beef, but maybe not with real beef. If you want to try this jam with beef, look for fake beef!
