Last month I posted about my visit to Alberto's garden to see his fig trees.
Alberto told me about his BBQ fig recipe--a recipe that is well suited to the almost-ripe figs that northern fig growers are picking from their trees before stowing them away for winter. While such figs don't make great eating, Alberto says his BBQ recipe fixes things.
BBQ FIGS A LA ALBERTO
- use figs that are somewhat sweet--but not fully ripe and soft
- BBQ on grill or in foil until they become soft and the inside starts to ooze out
- mix with cinnamon, pine nuts, oregano, honey, and a touch of balsamic vinegar
