FRESH FIGS

Hi, I love fresh figs & would like suggestions of what interesting things I mad make with them. I looked under Food 52 recipes and could not pull up, "Fresh Figs"?
Thank you so much!

There was a thread on this recently. If you search the hotline (as opposed to recipes) for "ideas for fresh figs", it should come up. Some terrific recipes are there to add to the list above.

Maedi, how long do you like to cook these pizzas and at what temperature?

You can use them on pizza. Make a pizza dough and roll out as normal. brush with olive oil and top with slices of figs and bits of goat cheese and proscuitto. You can also add some fresh thyme leaves if you like. Or, as an alternative try fresh figs, Gorgonzola, and walnuts.

Wrap in prosciutto, grill over the coals, place on a bed of arugula and drizzle with honey.

Great appetizer: easy! Slice in halve, length-wise. Make indent in middle & fill with goat cheese of choice. Add drop of high-quality balsamic, then wrap in prosciutto. Broil until prosciutto is crisp, about 2 minutes. Yum!

This is a great recipe, Suzanne uses dried figs but I would sub fresh for the dried.
