Add some flavor, color, and nutrition to your table this fall with these delicious fresh fig recipes.
Dried figs are wonderful, and I love to cook with them year-round. But in late summer and early fall, you can find fresh figs here in the U.S., and that’s something to get excited about.
If you’ve never tried fresh figs, you’re in for a treat.
There’s just nothing like the sweet, seedy, squishy goodness of figs when they’re at the peak of ripeness.
As for the nutritional benefits of figs, they’re a good source of fiber, antioxidants, and probiotics, as well as some important minerals.
And fresh figs are truly versatile. They can be the stars of the show as elegant appetizers. They can go sweet or savory in a rich dessert or on a specialty pizza. Or they can play a supporting role in salads and main dishes.
Below, you’ll find a wide range of fresh fig recipes to enjoy while they’re still in season.
