Green figs are a vegan delight to eat any time of the day as a snack, or for breakfast, or for a dessert for any meal; they are soft and sweet.
This is a pint container of fresh ripe green figs that we purchased in our local supermarket. We rarely see fresh figs for sale in the market because they are so perishable, so we usually buy them when they are available. “Green” refers to the color of the ripe figs. Like other figs, they are very soft when ripe and easily bruised. Select figs that are free of bruises and blemishes, and that are not oozing any juice. Ripe green figs will store for a few days in the refrigerator. Just wash them and eat them as they are. They’re great!
