What do you do with figs?
They are often used in desserts, for example, a cobbler or crumble, such as in this recipe, or used for making jams and chutneys, They're also used in appetizers, such as these warm figs stuffed with goats cheese, on pizzas, in cakes, the list is endless.
How do you eat figs?
Figs can be eaten in their entirety. So the flesh, skin, and seeds are all edible. Al you need to do is cut the stem off.
What do figs taste like?
As far as the taste of figs, they are best eaten straight from the tree. They have a sweet honey-like taste, and a jam-like texture. The seeds are very small and don't really taste of anything but add to a slightly crunchy texture.
