Dunno babe I was in Publix yesterday and walked quickly by those fig i would have bought them if I knew they were half price anyways semi-irrelevant to me because I have some (2 varieties) growing in me garden along with mangoes, bananas etc waiting 2013 for the muscadines to come in
I've bought all four varieties of figs at Publix so far: black mission (our favorite), brown turkey, kadota, and sierra. All delicious, though. I like to cut them in half, put a little goat cheese on them, and wrap them in a paper-thin slice of prosciutto. My wife likes a little dollop of local honey on hers. I look forward to fig season all year, especially when they finally go on sale!
Yeah, we had to pick some up. Figs freeze pretty well. We just peel them, stick them in plastic bags, force out all of the air, and drop them in the freezer.
As for a good fig recipe, here's a good one we've done for a get-together.
Fig, bacon, and goat cheese pizza
I've subbed blue, hoop, farmers cheese, and also fresh basil (instead of arugula) on it.
