Fresh figs are a real treat – eaten out-of-hand, grilled or roasted. Black Mission Figs are the sweetest flavored fig, and some may argue the most popular. Figs can be used in salads, sauces, desserts, sauces, cheese plates and fruit platters. Classic when paired with prosciutto ham and musk melon. Their flavor is lovely with wild game and poultry. They also love the compliment of lavender.
