Pickle them? http://www.bourbonandboots...

Or...dry them, then make fig honey! http://food52.com/recipes...

You can always make jam out of them. Try roasting some and if they're not special keep cooking them into jam.

I made jam last year with figs from same source and it was very bland and odd tasting, and not in a good way. I'm going to try roasting and then making jam as you suggest. Thanks

Halve them and serve ripe with prosciutto or jamon serrano. I am doing this myself tomorrow.

Figs typically don't ripen once off the tree. Unless they were picked almost ripe which it sounds like these weren't.

David is right - they will not ripen further; I think you're looking at roasting them or making them into jam to get anything decent from them. See boulangere's recent post on roasting figs for one idea: http://thesolitarycook...

Thank you . I'm going to roast some and hope it improves the flavor. Thank you for the link.
