Figs are one of my favorite fruits! They have such amazing flavor and just look at how beautiful they are.

Holiday Hens with Fig Glaze and Cornbread Stuffing is a culinary masterpiece! Just as great for a dinner party as it is for your average wednesday night dinner. Just so very very lovely. The recipe says it serves 4 but you can split those hens and make more stuffing, it would easily feed 8 with a little salad. Seriously great, I cannot recommend this enough.

Second is a super easy spread for toast or crackers.

8 ounce package plain goat cheese, softened
3-4 fresh figs, minced
2 Tbsp good quality honey

Mix this together and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Spread on toast, bagels, crackers, anything you like! Great with breakfast eggs.

  1. I've never (believe it or not!) had figs outside of fig newtons. I've always been curious about them but I'm not sure what to do with them! How do you pick good (ripe? tasty?) figs and how do you clean them/what parts of them do you eat? Thanks!
