Since you are looking at this recipe, I assume you are a fig lover. We are a house full of fig lovers and we rarely get our fill of this precious fruit because:
a. The fig tree in our orchard has never done well, ravaged by one critter after another. Bears can be hard on fruit trees, you know.
b. Figs do not keep for long after they ripen which is probably why it is not a popular market crop. When we are fortunate enough to find figs for sale, they are in small baskets with hefty price tags.
So given our fig shortage, we came up with this idea for showcasing the figs we do have. Roasting the figs intensifies the flavor. One or two figs per serving offers enough flavor to provide a satisfying fig experience. Besides the flavor, the color is bright and jewel-like, an impressive enough dessert to offer to company.
If you are lucky enough to have a quantity of figs, you could make a large batch of roasted figs. Store them in the refrigerator up to four days. You could enjoy these roasted figs on shortcake with whipped cream, in dessert crepes, over melted brie. Try this recipe once and you will come up with all sorts of great ideas!
