I love figs, but it took me longer than I care to admit to realize that the things I thought of as “figs” (i.e., dried) were even better fresh. (I blame Canada.) These fig recipes use both, to keep you going whether in season and out.

Also, there’s probably a rule that I have to include this:

  1. I had a super disappointing fig yogurt-related experience this morning, so I think I’m pretty much required to make something off of this list for dinner. The only question is how I’m supposed to choose just one thing to make when everything looks so delicious

  2. Heh I have figgy recipe I could add but I can’t share it, because it’s a family secret and it’s way too heavy duty.
    Cucidati aka fig cookies.

    Had no idea there could or would be so many savoury recipes for figs. Sweet sure, but savoury? Wouldn’t have thought it.

    I missed last week’s cake round up…
