Brown Turkey Figs

Just got gifted with a dozen gorgeous brown turkey figs.

Accepting suggestions on what to do with them.

Already have fig jam, not looking to make more. But all other ideas/suggestions are welcome

  1. Most common is blue cheese stuffed and baked figs, i love them on thick toast with a soft mild cheese and basalmic drizzle, also great addition to salads, or roasted and on yogurt or ice cream

      Yep, stuffed with cheese is a good idea. Also like roasting them.

      1. A friend with a fig tree makes lovely clafoutis with her figs and adds a drizzle of alcoholic caramel sauce when she serves it warm.

          Had already thought of clafouti but not an alcoholic caramel sauce. I like it :-)!

            Yeah, we're grown-ups! I think she might macerate or stew the figs lightly in some of the sauce before baking too.

        2. I think Brown Turkey are best raw since I find they get too soft when cooked. I would wrap them in thin proscuitto and enjoy with a glass of Prosecco.

          1. I made fig ice cream this year, using David Lebovitz's recipe in The Perfect Scoop. Delicious.
