About Fig / Athipalam 

Discover the exquisite journey of figs as they undergo a delightful transformation from fresh and succulent fruits to delectably sweet and concentrated dried figs. Drying figs not only preserves their rich flavors and nutrients but also offers a convenient and versatile snack that can enhance both your culinary creations and your overall well-being. This guide will unveil the art of drying figs and provide insights into how to enjoy their lusciousness in various ways.

Materials Needed

  • Fresh figs
  • Baking sheet or drying rack
  • Knife
  • Optional: lemon juice, sugar, honey, spices

 Select Fresh Figs

Choose ripe and high-quality fresh figs for the best results. Look for figs that are plump, slightly soft, and free from blemishes.

 Wash and Dry

Gently rinse the figs under cool water to remove any dirt or debris. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.

 Prepare Figs

Trim off the stems from the figs using a knife. You can also slice the figs in half if desired, although this step is optional.

Optional Pre-Treatment

For enhanced flavor and preservation, consider dipping the figs in a mixture of lemon juice and water (1:3 ratio) or lightly brushing them with honey or a sugar-water solution. This step also helps prevent browning.

Arrange for Drying

Place the prepared figs on a baking sheet or drying rack, ensuring they are spaced out to allow proper air circulation. If you're using a drying rack, place it in a well-ventilated area.


Allow the figs to dry naturally. You can choose between sun drying, using a food dehydrator, or drying in an oven. For oven drying, set the temperature to around 135-140°F (57-60°C) and leave the oven door slightly ajar to allow moisture to escape. Drying times will vary depending on the method and fig size.

Test for Readiness

The dried figs should feel leathery and pliable, with no residual moisture when bent. They should not be overly dry or brittle.

 Cool and Store

Allow the dried figs to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. You can place parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Enjoy and Savor

Dried figs can be enjoyed as a wholesome snack, added to trail mixes, oatmeal, yogurt, or salads. They can also be rehydrated by soaking them in water or other liquids for use in various recipes, such as baked goods, jams, chutneys, or sauces.

 Witness the magical evolution of figs as they transition from fresh succulence to concentrated sweetness through the art of drying. By mastering the technique of drying figs, you're not only preserving their natural goodness but also unlocking a world of culinary possibilities that will delight your taste buds and elevate your culinary creations.
