  1. What do you use them for after they are frozen? I froze them like this before but when thawed they became a mushy mess.

  2. Once the figs are frozen & I make preserves later on do I need to thaw them or just cook according to recipe & proceed with making the preserves? We have been unable to locate any jars/lids/rings right now due to pandemic so I want to save fruit until stores are restocked. Thank you!!!
