1
Begin with the honey walnuts. Heat the honey in a non-stick pan. Once bubbling, add the walnut pieces and stir to coat evenly. Keep on cooking until the honey starts to turn a dark amber, but take off before it starts to burn. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and leave to cool

Next, make the fig relish. Heat a splash of oil in a pan and add the onions. Sweat until soft then add the sugar, vinegar and figs
3
Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly, then take off the heat and leave to cool
4
As the relish cools, make the scones. Place the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, butter and Saint Agur into a bowl and rub together until you have a rubble-like texture

Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes until you have nice golden scones
