Feuding Figs

Know your figs! Jammy-sweet Missions pair well with cheese and yogurt, while subtler Brown Turkeys are suited to salads and savory dishes.

1. Fig Old-Fashioned

Muddle a fig into maple syrup, orange juice & balsamic, then drown in bourbon for a cool weather drink that’s sure to keep you warm.

2. Brown-Sugar Roasted Fig Oatmeal

Simply roasted figs are a crowning glory to a hearty bowl of brown sugar and almond milk laced oats.

3. Figs & Gorgonzola Crostini

You could serve these for lunch, or you could serve them as a canape at cocktail hour. Either way, just try to get them from the kitchen to the table without eating every last one yourself.

4. Chicken Fricassée with Figs and Port Sauce

Wrap chicken in salty-sweet prosciutto, then set in a braise of tomatoes & corriander for a deeply aromatic entree, graced with a sweet, glossy fig-port sauce.

5. Fresh Figs with Mascarpone, Mint & Honey

6. Fresh Fig & Raspberry Tart with Honey
