Quoted from Patty H
They go bad fast, so it is best not to let them hang around.

I friend I give figs to told me of this method he uses to keep the figs good...

Put the figs in a freezer bag so they are just touching (or not) and freeze.  When you want one (or some), take them out of the bag and allow them to thaw for some time prior to use.  This way all of the unused are staying good...

Some figs have a firmer skin than others...  The figs from my tree get ripe and you can't peel anything, but my neighbors tree, you almost have to peel the figs as the skins resemble leather...

Here are some methods to peel figs. (You may still be scratching your head about why anyone would want to peel a fig, after you finish reading.)

1) Take a paring knife and cut off the the outer layer of the fig.

2) To make the above easier, divide the fig into quarters. Then it is easy to use a knife to remove the outer layer of the fig.

3) Gently pull off the stem and the skin attached to it, then peel the rest with your fingers.

Oh, so figs are like people: some are thinner-skinned than others.

Thanks Sharp! I have an eye allmost swollen shut from a wasp sting and wasn't looking forward to retyping it.

BTW if you multiply the recipe by 8 to use 1/2 gallon of figs(for canning) the yield is 14 pints ergo the yield for a single recipe is 1 and 3/4 pints.

Can't wait to try this.  I have to omit hot peppers.   I can have red pepper flakes, but the last time I did that, I was in agony with stomach pain for a day.
