Fig trees are an intrinsic part of the Greek landscape. Ripe figs are always plentiful in the summer. They're mostly eaten raw, sun-dried or made into sweets and jams. This is a very simple recipe from Modern Greek.

Delicious and very easy. I felt it needed a little touch of 'spice' and did just the barest sprinkling of cinnamon. Served with greek yoghurt and the barest drizzle of thyme honey.
