Love figs! We never see fresh ones in our stores so I would love to win this!
Annamarie V says
I love to eat them all by themselves, I have a fig tree in my yard but it takes a while for them to ripen so I only get a couple a week.
I do can, I’ll be taking g care of the garden tomatoes this week.
If I got a case of figs, I’d probably make jam. My husband would probably just eat them wrapped in prosciutto.
i love making grilled cheese with them
There are a few markets near me that carry fresh figs. I love eating them plain when they are perfectly ripe. They’re also good with goat cheese.

We love figs! I’d make some red wine and fig jam. Thanks for the giveaway!
We love them on pizza and they are almost impossible to get where we live.
Linda Bick says
Figs are my favorite! I love to just eat them……? Fig jam sounds great!!!!
Beth S. says
Stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon!! and yes they are!
I don’t get figs often but when I do I make jam. I like to try to make Ocracoke Fig cake!
Got the book…made the jam…it was DELICIOUS!! We have young fig trees, so just getting started and this book arrived at the perfect time for our first small harvest. More figs would help us enjoy more of this jam until next season.
Fresh figs are just divine…have also made fig brownies, jam with cheese…just love the flavor. I had a fig tree for a few years and it did not make it thru our Chicago winter. So sad, I miss going out to my yard to eat them right off the tree!

my book is on order. can’t wait to get started. Just yesterday I was trying to remember if anybody I know had figs. so perfect timing. Growing up my Grandmother had a fig tree. We always made strawberry fig jam.
When I was a kid, I loved fig newtons – and now, I make homemade ones from fresh figs – yum!
(Since fresh figs are seasonal, they can be hard to find in my area.)
Love fresh figs! I often grill them with a bit of goat cheese, then drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over them.Not too hard to get here in season in the Northeast.
I have never even tried a fig! ?
Kristen D says
I love figs on a salad with arugula, some vinegar, and spiced nuts. With either cottage cheese or ricotta on top. So good!
Btw..great line up of delicious food this week.especially the chops and chicken recipes..the tailgate chicken sandwich too.
I forgOt to mention in my post above.
We have great figs here in the south. And we southerners love them.
For the longest time my mom had a tree growing by her back kitchen door. Some years ago..after our hurricanes it died…I need to replant at some point.
There are so many great fig recipes. Two that come to mind are fig preserves..and an app for entertaining bacon or prosciutto wrapped figs stuffed with cream cheese or hot pepper jam.
