Simply Grilled Figs!
So I go by my neighbors fig tree while out walking Ziggy. I notice a few of the figs look ripe. It won't hurt to pull of a handful and see what I can do with them. She did say I could have some when they ripened. Once I cut one I found they weren't quite ready. But since I had good success grilling green tomatoes, why not these. I cut them in half and I coated them with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. As they grilled, they became moist with a clear liquid in the center beginning to bubble. I wasn't sure what I was going to produce.
They came out quite good. Though not at the height of ripeness, they were a little sweet. A roasty taste worthy of doing again.
