To peel or not to peel?
When I was growing up, my family used to have two varieties of fig--Black Mission and some kind of greenish variety from Italy. My parents always peeled these figs before eating them fresh, so I assumed everyone did the same. But lately I've noticed that some people eat their figs skin-on.
Just curious on what kind of fig-eating habits some of you here have. Are there some varieties that are appropriate for eating skin-on and others that aren't? Or do some of you peel everything or eat just about any skin?
I'm just so used to peeling that I had started to assume that the peel was not edible.
