from the kitchen: Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs
It's fig season! From now through September, you can enjoy the freshest, most perfect figs that nature has to offer.
At the girl & the fig, we rely on friends and neighbors to help keep us stocked on these beautiful, fresh figs. Large crates arrive at the back door, sometimes daily, of perfectly-ripe figs still warm from the sun. These go into our salads, jam & compote, our signature fig crisp, seasonal fruit and cheese plates, and countless other creations.
If you know someone with fresh figs to share, or if you're lucky enough to have a tree of your own, we've put together a series of simple and delicious fresh fig recipes for you to try.

12 fresh figs, cut in half
12 slices of proscuitto, sliced very thin
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 F. (This could also be done on the grill!)
1. Cut the figs in half, then wrap the fig halves with the prosciutto.
2. Skewer each fig half to keep the prosciutto in place for grilling, then drizzle with olive oil.
3. Roast the figs for 15 minutes and serve.
We hope you enjoy the season's fresh figs! Be sure to check the blog for more fresh fig recipe inspirations throughout this year's fig season.
We know it seems impossible to have too many fresh figs. However, if you have a fig tree and find yourself with some extra bounty this year, be sure to keep our Local Fig Program in mind!
During fig season, you can trade in your fresh figs for some fig-cash! We will trade you $3 for every pound of fresh figs you bring to our kitchen at the girl & the fig. For more information, please click here.
