    Check out www.foodgawker.com. That is one of my favorite recipe sites. Searching for fig brought up over 1,000 recipes. I really enjoyed the fig muffins I made.

    If you have a dehydrator you can dry them. They make yummy snacks. Keep them in the fridge afterwards, especially if you live in a hot climate. They might mold a bit if left to the heat. I dried several gallons this year for family members.

    I know many people like the "fake strawberry" jam, made with figs . . . but personally . . . YUK! Just make fig preserves/jam!!! Don't ruin those beautiful figs, with fake flavoring!

    Fig ice cream is also verrrrrrrrry yummy!!!

    You can also clean them, then freeze them. YUMMY, even frozen!!!

    They're really best fresh off the bush/tree! If there is a lot of the white next to the skin, I prefer to just eat the yummy pink middle. Some figs have lots of white, others it is very thin...We used to have one little fig bush (only about 2-1/2 ft tall) that had the sweetest, juiciest little figs. I loved them. Our other two fig bushes were probably 8-10 feet tall with the great big figs that my mom made into preserves. But the little ones, we just ate (and ate, and ate).

    Just today while waiting around in the dentist's office I came upon a recipe in a People magazine that was a banana bread with 1 1/2 cups of figs added. I didn't get to read it closely. It was probably dried figs, but I see no reason why fresh ones wouldn't work, and I plan to try it the next time I make banana bread.
