  5. Make fig jam or conserve – good in winter and great on ice cream

  6. I LOVE figs!! Of course, we also have a fig tree in our yard, lol! I’ve made tons of recipes as of late-all fig-based as you can imagine; fig, turmeric and banana milkshake, mashed figs with orange zest and Greek yogurt (so NOT authentic, lol), and roasted figs…YUM!

    Hi Jennifer
    Figs are always a real treat! The green ones are even better than the dark ones, much sweeter! I just love them, plain, made into jam, cookies and cakes so many different ways and yet still just eating one off of a tree can be amazing! Enjoy! Have a beautiful day!

  8. I just love them so much I can be considered addicted. If you wanna taste them in a unique way split the fig in 4 with the base not cut, put a cube of gorgonzola in the niddle and top it with a nut. Heat it up under the grill and, if seriously gluttonous, add a drop of bitter honey!

    Whenever I find them on the stores here in Canada I buy the entire basket and it’s never enough.!

  11. Dip them? I am a gluten when it comes to figs, they are straight from the tree and into my mouth.
    There is no better fruit in this planet.
    Enjoy your figs.

  12. Yummy!!!!!!
