FIGS – Bellaugello: Luxury gay bed and breakfast near Perugia, Umbria, Italy

It’s that time of the year again.  Having shed the June fig crop owing to the lack of rain in the spring this year the gigantic fig tree in the gardens here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House is laden with September figs – the second crop of the year.  Although the fruit are physically smaller than the first crop the figs are plentiful and juicy and very sweet.

So for me it is off to harvest and then into the intense heat of the kitchen to make fig marmalade for the guests’ breakfasts….
