I love figs and was lucky enough to find a whole lot of huge fig trees near my kid's house and we picked and picked.
So I have been cooking with these delightful little morsels which I think are a bit of an acquired taste!

Some are sweeter than others, as they ripen and now I have some left over if anyone wants to come try! Have cooked several dishes with them included cheese and fig toasted sandwiches for visitors who loved them!

Oooh, yummy!

I've remembered . . ! It was a question about wasps and how they lay their larvae in figs and we can't see them so we don't know if we are eating them or not.

I have always eaten dried fgs - it was a Christmas staple in England when I was little. I can eat fresh figs but have not eaten any since that question we had on AA about the "visitors" that live in them . . . now I peer at fresh figs with suspicion.
by Rice
i dont remember that one but it applies to all fruit especially stone fruit.
My friend (LOL) who took off with my husband had 130 apricot trees and there were always worms in them till she started to spray and even then if you let them ripen too long, worms would appear - they dont eat much and only apricots in their tummies!

ps the dried figs are too sweet for me.
by Finy
I don't recall ever having tried one. I believe that they are quite tart, so I probably wouldn't like them, but of course, I am willing to try them if the opportunity arose.
no, not tart, Lluxi -at least the ones I picked, or have ever bought, are sweet
by Finy
I would have said too sweet for most people.
by Rice
buy them not ripe and they are not so sweet!
by Finy
(nothing's too sweet for me, Finy. haha.)
by Rice
I know Finy. I have to have things fairly sweet or I wont like them. I'll have to give them a try

I've only had it fresh once but didn't know what it was. It was my wife who told me what it was . it was nice and different.
Yes I love figs - both fresh and dried

No, I'm not keen on figs, my parents used to have a fig tree, I used to think yuk how can you eat them, but they did enjoy them.
I have only had one once and fell in love with them!
Yummy fruit and yes love them, however too much and I get an allergic skin reaction so only eat small quantities now and then
I would eat masses of fresh figs when I was a kid as there were lots of trees nearby which we could help ourselves from!!! I have always loved them fresh and also dried. I now have a small tree in a tub here in Nth Qld, and I get fruit on it regularly, which has always been such a surprise for me!! When I see the ridiculously expensive price of them in the supermarkets and fruit shops, I just cannot understand why they are so dear. They are a fruit which grows so prolifically.I think it could be to do with the 'trendiness' of using them in many of the cooking shows now on TV.
Yes, I love figs. We had a fig tree when I was growing up. My dad used to put paperbags over the ones that were ripening up, so the bull-bull's, (wrong spelling?) wouldn't eat them. I haven't seen any b-b's since then! My bought some in Aldi this morning, while I was doing the food shopping. The 1st 1 I tried wasn't juicy, but I hope some of the others will be! I also buy the dried ones, when I can, & I dice those up on my breakfast cereal.

Recently, (in Jan '17) I found a 360g jar of Kalamata fresh figs, & a 370g of Kalamata dried figs, both by the 'Sandhurst Family Collection'. I haven't tried them as yet, but I'm sure they'd be quite yummy over vanilla ice-cream or Greek yogurt.
