How to Eat: (just a suggestion)
Dry fig leaves can be used as a tea just as you normally brew tea leaves. You can also use the fresh leaves. Boil them up for 15 minutes and strain.
Cook up fig leaves in lightly salted water for 20 minutes or until tender, then use as a spinach green alternative.
Use fig leaf as a wrap. The leaves add a great Mediterranean flavor to food when wrapped and cooked. Fig leaves can be used to wrap rice and vegetables, or to wrap fish.
Cook up a vegetable curry with big leaves in it. Remove the leaves at the end. The leaves add a lovely flavor.
(my personal favorite!) Dredge in a tempura batter and fry, serve with your favorite dip or hummus.
