How to Preserve Figs
Today Shirley Bovshow is giving tips on how to preserve this nutritious fruit referred to as nature’s candy! Figs are full of anti-oxidants and fiber; summer is the best time for harvesting them. When selecting them, choose ones that have a bit of brown and feels full and plump. Figs will last up to three days in the fridge, but up to two years in the freezer. When using a dehydrator, cut figs in half for faster drying and when storing dried figs minimize the air exposure in your container by filling it as much as possible.
