I notice that figs are BOGO at Publix this week, but I've never bought them, or cooked with them. Other than just eating them, what do you do? I'd make fig jam if I ever entertained anymore. I love me a bit of fig jam and cheese on a cracker, but we don't really do that.

I just eat them and if I had a Publix in this STATE, I would on the way there right now to get some. Fresh figs are one of the best fruits on earth, in my opinion.

But if I were forced, at gunpoint, to sully them with other ingredients, I'd halve them and wrap them in prosciutto and sprinkle them with lemon juice. Or I'd make a fig tart.

I just eat them fresh and raw.

But if you want to cook, make one of those fruit pizzas. Sugar cookie crust, cheese cake filling, topped with a lovely pattern of fresh fruit. A few figs are good on that.

Yum! Figs! I also tend to just eat them but they are also good with a little gorgonzola cheese and/or roasted almonds.

Add me to the list of those who just eat them the way they are.

I never had fresh figs until someone brought some home grown into work...yummy!

If you do make fig jam, I love eating crackers with blue cheese and fig jam. You could probably try it with the fresh figs as well.

Yes, I'm getting some crackers and blue cheese or Gorgonzola. Sounds like a great combination.

There are tons of figs here where I live, seems everyone has a fig tree. But they make them into fig preserves for the most part, and load 'em with sugar. So sweet I can't eat them. Various people give them to us every year, and I end up tossing them out. (Hubby can't say no--we have a ton of frozen deer sausage and ground deer in out freezer, too, from his co-workers.)

If I ever get the urge to make fig preserves I don't think I 'd add any sugar at all.
