You should have no problem getting nice figs at Christmas time and they're wonderful to make in so many ways so when you see them, buy them up! Here's one really gorgeous way to have them. I promise you won't get bored of these; there are so many lovely ways of using them up. Personally, I like to make a sort of bruschetta with them or put them out on a platter with some nice cheese. As it's Christmas and your kitchen is probably well-stocked, you'll hopefully have the ingredients for the bruschetta on hand already. If not, you can always improvise with whatever you've got in the fridge.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
