I've never used figs preserved except through jam. What are some ways you use whole figs? Are there any kid-friendly ideas you might suggest? What are some of the best varieties to preserve this way?

When processing, is this in a pressure canner or water bath?

My family has always preserved whole figs. Usually eat with biscuits or toast. Bite of biscuit, bite of fig, sop up syrup with biscuit. Yummy.
We use under ripe  Brown Turkey. Under ripe hold together during cooking.

Sounds so good!  I never thought of making a whole fig preserve.  Will have to try, if I get any figs to ripen and become larger than half a dime size.
