10 Fresh Fig Recipes

Try these effortless fig recipes, each well worth a mad dash to the farmers' market.

Figs certainly are delicious in a cookie, but if you want to use this delicious fruit in another way then you will love these amazing recipes. From salads to steaks, these fig recipes show you how to give your figs some fizz. For finger food, enjoy Baked Fig Crostini—it pairs the saltiness of bacon with the sweetness of figs. That same bacon can be wrapped around whole figs for the Bacon Wrapped Figs, garnished with toasted pecans, or the Bacon-Wrapped Bourbon Figs. For something hearty, enjoy the Fig-and-Balsamic Glazed Quail, or pare your palate back with a simple recipe for Pancetta-and-Fig Pasta. Finally, there’s the fizz: the Fig-and-Bourbon Fizz, to be exact. Pair bourbon, a Southern classic spirit, with the beautiful color and taste of a Black Mission fig. These recipes will have you wishing fresh figs were always in season.
