Ingredients

4 slices of bread
4 figs, diced

Juice of ½ lemon

Drizzle the bread with olive oil and bake at 100C for 30 mins until crisp and golden. Set aside.

Add the figs to a hot pan with a splash of olive oil. Brown lightly then add the sugar, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and cinnamon and cook on a medium-high heat for 10 mins until it achieves a jammy consistency. Set aside to cool.
