The pizza is a bit like one I had a few weeks ago at Ushers in Moorhead, MN. My niece and I both ordered this off the appetizer menu and were pleased with our dinner choice. I topped mine with arugula this time instead of the asparagus. Ushers is in an old building along the Red River, so it's beautiful to sit and look at the river and watch the sun set. There's even an old stone pit on the grounds where a bear was once kept. Yea, I think that's a bit strange also.
Fig jam...just waiting to made. We're huge fans of the sweet version; however, it needed to be a tiny bit more on the savory side for dinner. Combining a number of recipes, this is what I made:
1 c dried figs
2 c water
1 t lemon juice
1 T maple syrup
Cook all ingredients down for 30 minutes or so and blend with an immersion blender. Now it's ready to put in yogurt or on pizza.
