Do you have any fresh fig recipes?
Fresh Fig Recipes are the best! When I hear figs, I immediately turn to Too Hot in the Kitchen cookbook as I LOVE this pizza featuring figs as you savor sweet and salty in every bite with this wonderful ingredient. Everyone seems to be asking me about figs-either someone is picking them or getting them fresh from a friend-so must be fig time. Figs are high in fiber and potassium. Remember, for fresh fig recipes, you can always use dry figs. However, I think the fresh figs are the best!
