“I’ll order anything that has the word ‘fig’ or ‘crusted’ in the menu description.” – Michael Carbonaro
Figs have long been one of my favorite fruits. If the birds haven’t beaten you to them, they are fun to pick and eat right off the tree. If you don’t have access to a fig tree then you’ll have to take your chances of the fruit being available at your closest farmers’ market during fig season which is usually the month of July in my part of the country.
This recipe was adapted from a similar one posted on Wetcreek by Linda in July 2015.
The figs must be prepared before baking this recipe:
First, pick about 3 cups of ripe figs.
Trim off the stems and remove any blemishes. Cut the figs into halves, large ones can be quartered.
In a bowl, add 1/2 cup white granulated sugar to the prepared figs and let macerate in the fridge for an hour or two (or even overnight).
Then pour the sweetened figs into a crockpot, set it on High, and cook for 2 hours.
Stir the fruit a couple of times to make sure all figs cook evenly.
While the figs are cooking down, prepare the cobbler mixture.
