Dried figs were a usual staple around the holiday dinner table, served with fresh fruit and nuts during the typical "fruit course" and before the assorted desserts.
One of the best things about grilling season is the now fairly common availability of fresh figs, once a rarity unless you had fig trees growing in your backyard. They are great sliced in halves or quarters, brushed with oil --- perfect grilled outdoors, the fresh warmed figs served with thinly sliced Italian prosciutto, goat cheese, and drizzled with raw honey.
