    I got some figs and have no idea what to do with them. Was going to scoop out the inside and mix with some total 0% but not sure?
    How do u eat yours?!?!? Lol

    I cut a cross in the top of mine, stick a blob of feta cheese in the hole and wrap with ham then bake. Yum!
    Or bake whole with a few tsps of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve with total 0% yoghurt or if you really want to push the boat out use low fat vanilla icecream!

    Id never had figs in my life until about a month ago when Honey sent me this recipe: http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world-food-diaries/214451-erms-photo-diary-49.html#post4334999

    They were nice in the salad but I really prefer just eating them on their own! I keep getting a pack every week at the moment, although they are a bit expensive and they seem to be getting smaller so I guess theyre out of season now? They're lush though! :drool:

    Yep, just eat them whole, skin and all, the only bit you dont eat is the stalk :)

    They are great with goats cheese. Just make a slit innthe top and stuff it in. Wrap in ham if you have some too as that's gorgeous and bake for 20 to 15mins.

    I'm glad I read this thread, I would never have put figs with cheese. I normally just eat them with 0% total or low fat yoghurt.:p

    In which case, your new years resolution is to try one - they are delicious, i love em.

    Think may be out of season now, so you may have to wait a while.
