Has anybody tried making fig fruit leather?
Viki from Abbeville, AL
My mother did it every year until our fig tree died. It was the only way some of us would eat figs.
She cleaned the figs and peeled them, put them into the blender until they were soupy. Then spread them out thinly on plastic wrap in cookie sheets. If she put them outside to dry, she would cover the cookie sheet with cheesecloth held in place by pinching-type of clothes pins. (In Arizona, that is the most effecient way) She would roll up the plastic wrap along with the fig leather and store it that way until we used it.
Homemade is better than any kind of store bought "imitation flavored" leather.
Thanks, I went ahead and made some but I just stemmed, washed and pureed the figs. I rolled the leather in wax paper and cut into 2" pieces for snacking and vacuum sealed in mason jars.
Why would you need to peel them?
