Hi,



So I decided to buy some figs at the grocery store because I like things made out of them, but have never had them in fruit form. I cut one up and just sort of ate the pieces like very small orange slices. It was pretty good, but I have several more and would like to make something with them. They're a green variety and very sweet. Any ideas?



Also, how is one actually supposed to cut them? Thanks!

I usually cut the figs in half from the stem to the base and then eat them. Sooo good.



You can grill figs if you have a barbecue. Or quarter them and put them in a salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.



Fresh figs are so yummy.

Agreed, it's hard to beat nature's finger fruit.

I don't bother to cut them. I just bite into them and eat them.



They are very difficult to buy fresh in the store. They don't taste good unless they are picked when ripe, and once ripe and picked they go bad quickly.

We have fig trees. I don't really do anything with them, just eat them freshly picked. Soo good!

Thanks all,



I think I'll just go ahead, cut them in half and eat them fresh this time, since they are beginning to get a lil' mushy now. But I'm intrigued by the grilling concept. There was a recipe on that page that involved grilling them and using cinnamon and brandy on them. Sounds tasty.
