Fresh Figs, any recipes or how to eat them

Recommended Posts

What do I do with them? :hihi:

 

I bought some last week and they are sat there looking at me I don't have a clue what to do with them at all.

I had a tree full of them. I made spiced fig jam. I haven't tried it yet :)

Raw, like you'd eat a plum or peach.

 

or this one from Nigel Slater

 

Or this one.....I have to admit to having a "thing" about aubergines...I've tried treatment and I am a registered aubergine offender but I still have problems.

My sister's favourite thing to do with fresh figs is to slice them and serve on top of hot toast which is spread with Philadelphia.

 

I prefer them dried though.

Quarter them about 3/4's of the way down and then squeeze the quarters in to purse out the top. Drizzle with a tablespoon of honey and bake in a moderate oven for about 20-25 minutes. Serve with a dollop of creme fresh on top. Or if your feeling really naughty clotted cream. Very yummy.

  1. Quarter them but leave them attached at the base.
  2. Put a dollop of soft blue cheese in each one and drizzle with honey.
  3. Pop in a moderate oven for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with a few chopped walnuts.
  5. Devour!

I love fresh figs!

 

I couldn't find any in Sheffield. Where do you buy them?

 

Morrisons and Tescos do them.

 

I love them as they are - raw. Lovely, delicate flavour, a bit perfumy. Eat them skin and all.

 

They taste a lot nicer than they look - try one. :)

Outside my front door. They grow perfectly well here.

I think there are some wild trees between Meadowhall and the viaduct.
