Do you have any fresh fig recipes?

Fresh Fig Recipes are the best! Especially delicious easy fig recipes.  When I hear figs, I  immediately turn to Too Hot in the Kitchen cookbook as I LOVE this pizza featuring figs as you savor sweet and salty in every bite with this wonderful ingredient. Everyone seems to be asking me about figs-either someone is picking them or getting them fresh from a friend-so must be fig time.  Did you know they are high in fiber and potassium. Remember, for fresh fig recipes, you can always use dried, however, I think the fresh are the best!
