What to do with unripe figs?

I don't think the second flush of figs is going to make it to ripeness, given that the weather has gone very autumnal. I should take the rest of the figs off to get the tree ready for next year, but it does seem like a waste as they are really quite large. I wonder if you can make chutney with them? Appalling apple year this year, so I've made no apple chutney and have lots of jars.

Not sure what to do with all the grapes either, but at least those are ripe and sweet so I can just keep munching them off the vine.
