Figs cut on the top, ready to be stuffed with cheese
Last year we did a post about collecting figs with a few links for recipes but did not take any photos to show how we use figs in recipes. This year our fig harvest has been late because of heavy frosts in the spring. Compared to last year, the trees are producing fewer figs and we suspect the two late freezes could be the reason.
Figs cut and in the pan
Our favorite recipe is to stuff figs with goat cheese or cream cheese and then roast them in the oven. You simply cut a cross-shape in the top of the fig (where the stem has been removed), place them in a greased pan, and then put small dabs of goat or cream cheese (or both!) inside of the figs. We roast them at about 350 degree Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes until bubbly and they are DELECTABLE!
