Choose greener Figs that have Firmer texture:

If you are not going to immediately use the fresh figs you are picking up from the grocery stores or farmers market, you would want to choose greener figs that are not as ripe. So they can last longer in your fridge.

Choose purple Figs that are Softer:

If you are going to use fresh figs immediately, the dark purple and soft figs are fully ripened and ready to enjoy.

They are so juicy and sweet! An explosion of summer.

Because figs ripen fairly quickly. Especially in this summer heat. It is important to keep fresh figs cold to slow down the deterioration process.

If you picked deep purple, soft and ripened figs, use them immediately or put them in an air tight container or bag in your refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Since fresh figs are naturally sweet, adding another dimension of flavor will elevate the taste profile.

It pairs well with a variety of cheeses – sharp, creamy, stinky. I love them all.

And of course, the bitterness of dark chocolate also pairs seamlessly with fresh figs.

Especially when the melted dark chocolate hardens, the crunchy texture creates a nice contrast with the soft fresh figs.

 

How To Make Dark Chocolate Covered Figs

First, melt chocolate.

My favorite way is double pot method.

To begin with, place the chopped chocolate bars or chocolate chips you are using in a small pot. Then, put the small pot in a bigger pot filled with enough water to submerge about 1/4 of the small pot. Bring the water to semi-boiling. (Although the chocolate will start melting shortly after the water is warm.)

Then, stir the chocolate until it is completely melted.

 

Or, microwave it in a bowl. Although sometimes the power may be hard to control and it can slightly burn the chocolate if you are not careful.

Second, wash off about 4 – 5 large fresh figs. Then, slice them into your preferred thickness.

Third, chop up the pistachios.

Tip 1: Lay the sliced figs flat on a plate or baking tray. Leave them in the freezer for about 15 minutes. It will make the figs cool enough, therefore, help the chocolate stick better.

Lastly, dip the wider part of the figs in the melted chocolate, and then place on a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle pistachios and a little sea salt. Leave it in the fridge until chocolate completely harden and firm.

Tip 2: Wait till the chocolate not super hot. Otherwise, it will be hard to get a thick layer of it around the figs.

In order to make these chocolate covered figs Paleo compliant, I usually use chocolate bars or chocolate chips that uses coconut sugar. Additionally they should not contain any gluten or dairy. Therefore, they are also gluten free and dairy free.

Paired with dark chocolate (70% +), this fresh fig dessert is Keto friendly.

Note: Figs are higher in carbs compared to other fruits, so moderation is key.
