I just pop them into Ziplock Freezer bags. If you want to remove them from the bag a few at a time, freeze first on a cookie sheet and then pop them into the Ziplock. They are a real good snack if you take a few out of the freezer and let them thaw just until they are soft enough to eat. Yummy!

I just need enough time to accumulate enough figs for preserves, so I will try short-term freezing in Ziplog bags. Thanks!

I need to add an update to this tip for freezing figs. This procedure works, however, I must tell you that they can not be frozen long term. I think 6 months would be ok, but I had some in the freezer a year before I made them into jam.


They lost a lot of their flavor in that time. I am not sure what the answer is except to use them up in a few months. They were not spoiled, but really had what I can only describe as a"freezer taste".

Sometimes double bagging them helps to prevent the freezer taste. Also I think the freeze bags may be better also, but I would still double bag if you want to prevent the freezer taste more.

I cover a flat pan with parchment paper, line figs in one layer and freeze them. Once frozen I put them in a vacuum seal bag. They retain their flavor for up to a year.

This tip is a life saver. I have 7 gallons today and nobody within 30 miles has any canning jars due to the virus.


I'm going to freeze them short term until I luck up on some jars. Thank you !!!
