Easy roasted figs

This fig and goat cheese appetizer starts with fresh fig fruit. You’ll find them fresh at the market from about June to September. If you’re growing a fig tree of your own, you might see your tree produce two crops, the first (and larger) one in early summer, with a second fruiting on new wood in the early fall. In either case, you should be able to enjoy these roasted figs during your summertime cookouts.

Relying on seasonal fruits for our cooking certainly does make one appreciate them more, doesn’t it? Indulge while the figs are plentiful. (And then dream of this delicious appetizer the rest of the year!)

To make these easy roasted fig appetizers, you’ll cut whole figs in half and roast them in the oven. A clever cook could also do the roasting on the backyard grill.
