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.

    Like Kathleen above, I added 3/4 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of spice. Instead of cinnamon I used apple pie spice. I actually made a double recipe and cooked it in an antique berry/cobbler pan for twice the time. This recipe is a keeper!

        Delicious!
        I added –
        1 teaspoon baking powder
        I egg
        Nutmeg

        A definite hit! We have a fig tree so it’s a great way to use the fruit.

      So is the flour supposed to be self rising? I fixed this with all purpose flour because that’s what I assumed “flour” meant. Needless to say this did not turn out well. Wasted my ingredients. Recipe needs to be a little more detailed if that’s the case.

    1. Hi Linda, yes, it’s a total of 1 cup of sugar. Divide it in half and use half for over th figs and the other half in the cobbler mixture.
      Sorry if you got confused!
      Please enjoy

  2. Please ask your contributors to be specific about products ……like fresh, frozen or canned. Also the size of the dish is so important. If one doesn’t have that size dish, at least they know how to adjust to fit what they do have….and ALWAYS give a suggested time to check it….and for the benefit of your young, inexperienced cooks, I suggest adding the tip about laying a piece of aluminum foil, shiny side up, over pound cakes, cobblers, pies ….almost anything that is brown enough but obviously needs to cook more. When I write recipes to share with my young friends, I give any tips I think they might need and try not to leave an unclear instruction.
