I recently bought a jar of preserved figs. They didn’t seem as sweet as usual but are lovely and fresh tasting.
I kept the jar out of the fridge though and today I noticed that there’s a foamy bubbly layer on top and it smells yeasty and they taste slightly alcoholic. I Googled to see if they’re still edible and came across your post for fermenting figs.
Seeing as I don’t know what method was used when first preparing them I’m unsure of whether they’ve fermented correctly.
Is there anything I should look out for?

Seems like the figs you bought were preserved in sugar or vinegar?
Kraut Source is used for at home lacto-fermentation.
You should contact the business that made your fig preserve for the best answer.
