  1. Even though we gorge on them while we’re picking, we rarely have enough left to make a recipe. But when we manage not to snarf them up immediately, we just love a fig/serrano ham combo. That salty-sweet mix is so good.

    1. Dang, roasted figs AND gorgonzola in one recipe? I’m in! Thanks, @Ilana!

  2. In love with all those fig recipes.
    I made a fig clafoutis last week.
    Took a picture of it but I don’t know how to upload it here.

  3. I’m going to try the grilled Fig pizza! Now that the kids are in school full-time, I have the energy to try new recipes and I Looooove figs ;) Pinned!

  4. An elegant stewed fig compote dessert recipe and so refreshingly simple:
    Create a syrup made from either Marsala or Port wine and honey; simmer a bit before adding whole fresh figs and continue until reduced. Cool down to allow for flavors to develop (best overnight in fridge) and serve warmed with a mixture of ricotta, roasted sliced almonds, lemon zest, sugar, and vanilla…does not disappoint :)
