How to Dehydrated Figs
There isn’t much too dehydrating your figs. Pick them when they are ripe and be sure to clean them. Cut the stem off and quarter or half them. Place them on your trays in a single layer and set the temperature to 135 degrees. Depending on the type of dehydrator, it should take anywhere from 6-12 hours to dry. Remember to always let your dehydrated items cool to room temperature, and than check to see if they are completely dry.
Place them in a air tight container and condition the figs. Once they are condition properly they are safe to put on your shelf.
