How to Peel Figs?

Figs are a delicious easy to peel fruit. It is best to do this when they are ripe and fresh.

After washing them thoroughly, peeling figs can be done in the following way:

Hold the fruit in a way that is convenient for you. With the other hand, break off the stalk (if any). The skin is pulled smoothly to the top of the fruit, which removes it.

Then grab another part of the skin again from the top. It is pulled in the same way again.

The fruit is placed in a bowl and continue with the next. After a few tries, you will get used to the process and peeling a figs becomes simple.

You can also improvise. With a little patience, you get perfectly whole and well-cleaned figs.

There is also an option, for which you remove only the part around the stalk. This way, the fine and healthy part can be used for consumption.

I've also seen small dried figs peeled but with their stalks. A tool can be used to obtain this effect. The skin is caught just below the stalk and pulled back to the top of the fruit.

Fig skin is healthy and tasty and can only be removed if the recipe requires it. Peeled figs can be used immediately.

Unpeeled figs can also be used in appetizing recipes for fig cakes, fig jam or other fig desserts.
