Recipe For Lace Wrapped Figs

As you will see from this photograph, I have the most beautiful lavender growing at the moment. I have not wanted the flowers to go to waste and so I have harvested them for lavender petals, lavender sugar, and my infused honey. When I recently found some Turkish figs at the shops, I decided to make a creative dessert using the honey, and my crumpet mixture. I keep this in my pantry and add the wet ingredients when I have the whim to make crumpets.
