The wife and I enjoy eating dried organic California Black Mission Figs.
I usally get from bulk foods .com.
It says they are preserved with potassium sorbate.

OK, you know the question.........Could these be made into wine?:p

I know that we use potassium sorbate to stop fermentation, is this the same stuff?
Can it be rinsed off, or countered?

I just thought they might make an interesting wine.

There is only one potassium sorbate and you know what it's for. I wouldn't even attempt to ferment them. Why not wait for summer to get the fresh fruit? Figs start to ripen in July down south and they do make a decent wine.
