Fig Recipe Round-Up

It’s the end of Fig-A-Palooza! We’re still gathering figs here in Austin so the fig cooking/baking will continue, but I wanted to share with you some final recipes to round out your file. One of these I’ve tried, and the others I just found and intend to try, but do let me know if you come across any other fig recipes that are tasty.

Fig Cocktail: I tried this one and do not have pics for it because it was a bit of a bomb. Not that it didn’t taste great–figs and vodka? Come on!–but we didn’t strain it enough, so it was very pulp-y and strange. It merits a repeat performance, though.

Cherry Fig Crumble: Great recipe from my friend, Shawna Coronado. She and her daughter made up the recipe and it looks divine, dahling.

Caramelized Figs with Lavender Honey and CreamJust reading the name of this recipe nearly makes me weep. I have all the ingredients for it, and am going to try it this weekend! You know it’s going to be incredible.

Chocolate Mint Figs: Nothing more needs to be said, right?

Scrumptious Fig Squares: I haven’t tried this, but it sounds like a homemade Fig Newton, and I’m all about that.

Any more fig recipes that you know of or like? Ones you’ve made up yourselves? Send a link and I’ll post it!

Hi Jenny:

Here’s a link to my recent post about figs, with a recipe for Fig-Limoncello Jam. :)

Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes
and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate
a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
