Freezing Figs For Later

Currently I am living with my sweet in-law family as my husband and I build our house. And they have a garden! ---totally cannot wait to have my own garden! They also have two fig trees!

I want to make some fig preserves and some strawberry-fig jam, but I'm limited on space and I don't have my caning supplies on hand as they are all still in storage. I just can't handle watching the figs fall off the tree! What?!? NO! After reading that figs can be frozen for up to 6 months, I decided to do the following. So, if you are short on time or are in a position similar to mine, here is something you can do.

Go pick the figs

Wash them up

Dry them and place them on a parchment paper covered baking sheet

Freeze! Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag or container and store until you are ready!
