Additional Tips

Freezing your fresh figs are a great way to preserve the ingredient for your next recipe. First, wash your fresh figs under cool water and sort out any that are tender, as these will not freeze well. Pat dry the figs and place on a wax-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in your freezer and allow the figs to freeze for two to four hours. Once the figs are frozen, remove from baking sheet and store in a freezer-safe plastic storage bag. Store for up to three months.
