I put them in a smoothie but i was wondering what can i do with the rest of them?
I would like to use them in some dishes but don't know how and can i use them to make some sweets?
Help me please:)

They're really great in puddings. I did just 1 peach & a couple figs and another was kiwi with figs.

i had muesli this morning with chopped up fresh figs. i threw together oats, cinnamon, currants, chopped up figs and flaxseed. you can add some agave to sweeten it up a bit too.

Substitute the figs for the dates in a recipe. Like a pie crust for example. Adds a bit of a crunch to the crush. Also, RP's brownies? I've made using figs instead of dates.
1 cup walnuts (unsoaked)
1 cup dates (pitted unsoaked)
1/4 cup cocoa powder (you may use carob if you like)
Place in food processor, and blend until well blended; should still be dry and chunky, appx 30 seconds. Press into a small springform pan. Refrigerate until you can insert a knife and it isn't too sticky.
Cut into little pieces, then place in plastic baggies and freeze.
They can be eaten fresh from the fridge or from the freezer.
(Note: Sometimes you have to add a teaspoon or so of water so they stick together. You can also form them into balls and then roll them in raw coconut.)

I had always eaten the dried ones but didn't know what to do with the fresh ones, they are very sweet and taste great.
The ideas are wonderful, i will continue to buy them while they are in season:D
I will also freeze some for the winter, thanks again.
