Use fully ripened fruit
Set dehydrator or oven at 115-200 deg F. is best, but no higher that 140 deg F. For oven use the dehydrator setting!
Cut figs in half and place on drying racks, cut side down, in oven/dehydrator for 8-12 hours at 120 deg, 6-8 hours at 130 deg.
Store in freezer bags in the freezer. Good for 5-8 years.
If you do not want to store in the freezer, you should still freeze them for at least 4 days to kill any insects in the cracks and crevices. Then you can store in refrigerator for up to 24 months.
