This fall, you’ll find yourself making your own climbing figs at home, from the climbing fig itself to the climbing vine.
While it’s easy to get carried away and jump into the rush of making your fig, make sure you keep in mind what you’re buying and what the fruit’s going to look like.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make the climbing fruit at home.
How to Make a Climbing Fig in Your Own Home Here are the basics of making climbing fig fruit at your own kitchen table.
The fruit is sliced thinly and sliced into 3-inch pieces.
First, you must preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the sliced figs in the oven, but do not overcrowd them.
You want them to be able to spread out without getting too large.
Put the baking sheet on the stove top.
Add a cup of water and bring to a boil.
Remove from the heat and add the chopped figs.
Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and lemon zest.
Transfer to a baking sheet and let the figs rise for about 10 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and transfer to a serving dish.
Using a fork, remove the fig from the fig and transfer it to a bowl.
Using your hands, pick up the fig slices and set them aside to cool.
You can also freeze the fig for later use.
Place a small piece of the fig on a baking tray.
Drizzle the cinnamon, lemon zests, and ginger over the fig, and set aside.
Place one slice of the climbing grapefruit into the bowl and drizzle the juice over the grapefruit.
Spread a little of the citrus juice over each slice of climbing fig and top with the grapefruits.
Bake the fig at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cool and slice in half.
Transfer the sliced grapefruit to a cutting board and cut it into smaller pieces.
You will need about 15 to 20 grapefigs for this recipe.
Serve with a slice of ice cream.
