I cut the figs in half, peel and remove most of the pith, and lay them out on a cookie sheet. Then I roast them in the oven on convection bake. They shrink quite a bit and get brown on the undersides plus bits of the tops. I then load them into containers for freezing or just in the fridge.
Roasted figs are great on a pizza with goat cheese! Or, wrapped in thinly sliced ham, or some other way. Anyway, roasting is a different flavor profile, I recommend it.
