What is the best way to store figs?

Fig season is here! These beautiful fruit are also quite fragile. Do you store your figs in the fridge or do you let them hang out on your counter for a bit? What are some of the best ways you enjoy sweet ripe figs this time of year?

  • We normally keep them on the counter, I prefer biting into my figs at room temp over eating them with a  colder flesh. Especially with a piece of goat cheese!! Yum.

  • I just ran across this problem this weekend after using only half of the figs in my chocolate chip and fig cookies.  I put the remaining figs in the fridge with a damp paper towel on top and they seemed to last a few days longer than normal.
