Known as the ‘fruit of the gods,’ Wild fig trees were around one hundred million years ago – the same time as the dinosaurs!
Figs have a 55% natural sugar content – that makes them the world’s sweetest fruit
Depictions of fig leaves have long offered dignity to figures in paintings and sculptures; used to cover their nudey-rudey bits.
Beige, amber, light yellow and brown
These Figs have a Sweet fruit nectar note.
Our Dried Figs are incredibly flavourful; a sweet and savoury nectar, caramel-like to taste.
How to use
Chop and use; reconstitute them to extract as much flavour as possible; soak overnight to re-hydrate and plump up. For a sweet treat, eat them as they are.
How to store
Store in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight.
Figs are full of potassium, iron, B-complex vitamins and minerals; one fig contains almost as much calcium as an egg. Their food value increases when dried, which makes them a powerful ally for promoting bone density, lowering blood pressure and relieving constipation. As a superfood, Figs have the highest mineral and fibre content of any fruit, nut or veggie. Feast on them as a fab way to up your fibre intake and keep you regular.
