A post in another thread mentioned a memory of grandmother peeling Brown turkey figs before eating. That's a new idea to me--I grew up eating Kadotas right off the tree, no peeling. Kadotas have to have tougher skins than BTs, but I consider the taste of the skin as part of the experience of eating a fig.
The only time I've ever peeled a fig is to use it to make jam. But then I suppose there are also people who peel apples before eating them, but I've never actually met one, LOL.
Is peeling a fig a more common practice than I realized? Who here peels them, and what varieties? Please explain your reasons for peeling if you can.
