Figs!

  • m

Hey y'all I have access to a variety of really ripe figs and need to use them before they're out season. Anybody have any great recipes? (especially, revolving around breads pastries) They're already orgasmly good fresh off of the tree. Thanks in advance.

  1. An American Baker by Jim Dodge has recipes for tarts that use fresh figs with pastry cream or lemon curd. Chez Panisse Desserts has a recipe for fig ice cream that uses fresh figs.

    1. Fresh fig pizza is devine. Home made crust, baked on a baing stone, with quartered fresh figs, excellent quality fresh feta and oil cured black olives (no sauce needed). Drizzle with very good olive oil and sprinkle pizza with ribbons of fresh mint and basil immediately after removing from oven. One of our favorite late summer treats. Enjoy!
