Fig chutney is really nice for a sweet/tart/spicy combo
oh my goodness, I am crying tears of envy. I am no help to you because I love fresh figs so much I would just be shoving millions and millions of fresh figs into my face.
I planted a fig tree in my front yard and the gophers slowly ate away all the roots, over a period of about 3 years. It was so sad.
Ice cream! Make giant batches of delicious, scrummy fig ice cream.
Ooh I looooove fresh figs, used to have a fig tree in Southern Cal many mooons ago. We ate bushels. (bushels of figs?) Anyway ginger is an extra nice spice.
This is so cool. I have to admit, if I had figs, I'd just eat them. Plain. Maybe with a sweet ice wine. They are *so* rare here in their natural form, as opposed to fig newtons and the like, and *so* expensive...fig ice cream, though, good lord that sounds wonderful.
Save a few fresh and cook them on a pizza! Figs are great in savory dishes!
@Zoa: Fig ice cream can be made with dried figs and you can get them online for rather cheap.
