Dried Higuera

DRIED HIGUERAWhen the Higuera becomes blackened and molded like this, it is still possible to use it for your craft. However it becomes a little harder to prepare it.

First you have to cut the skin which has now become a little harder and brittle. Next you must get rid of the seed and pulp that is still inside also blackened and most likely molding and stinky.

I use a saw to cut it open and a knife to scoop the insides out. If it is too moldy I soak it in a combination of Peroxide plus water solution for a couple of days then sun bleach it for a couple more.
