The first signs of Fall have arrived: the mornings are crisp and overcast, the slutty mannequins at the costume shop on Denny are dressed as pirates, and figs are plentiful and cheap. Fresh figs are one of the most versatile Fall fruits around, and also one of the most delicious. Baked, grilled, or, in this case, broiled, they’re kinda hard to screw up. For this preparation, we’re glazing sliced figs with honey and spices – feel free to substitute whatever smells good to you (try Chinese Five Spice) – then broiling until the honey caramelizes.
