Too many figs

We love figs and at this time of year they are only €1 a kilo on the market, and if there is a handy fig tree they are falling off. The thing is you can only eat so many ... so i thought about drying them so that i have some later in the year. the ideal way is to have a proper drying machine, but then i heard about putting them in the sun in the windscreen of your car, and thought i would give it a go. I cut them in half and put them cut side up on an oven rack in the front of the car and sure enough they dried out really well, now they are in the freezer this pastuerizes them and they will either keep in the freezer for several months or in the fridge for up to eight weeks.
