Store the dried fruit in a dry, cool place away from light, preferably in a cool cellar. You can also store dried figs on the balcony during the winter months, protected from frost – in a polystyrene box, for example. The cold protects the dried fruit from pests such as pantry moths. The figs may develop a white coating, but they can still be eaten. This is fruit sugar that dries on the surface.

ALİ GÖKTAŞ FARMER FROM PALAMUT KÖYÜ, TURKEY
I decide for myself.

"Our house is situated near a mountain peak. I've lived here since I was born," says Ali Göktaș. Since the passing of his wife in 2020, he and his daughter live alone in the house. His son is also a farmer and has his own farm. "For most people here, farming is their livelihood. What I like about my job is that I am my own boss and I earn as much as I work."
