Falling for Figs
Grown on fragrant, leafy trees right here in Central California, our plump, soft and lightly sweet Figs are harvested at their peak and dried with care so you can enjoy them anytime. Mediterranean in origin, Figs lend themselves especially well to dishes of this region, including savory entrees enjoyed by vegetarians and carnivores alike and sweets that would make a sultan swoon. But don’t stop there…you can incorporate figs easily into your everyday diet, too!
Our California Black Figs and California White Figs make tagines, couscous and pilafs sparkle like jewels and are beautiful in honey-laden sweets for teatime or dessert. Try topping your morning oatmeal with chopped Figs and Chopped Walnuts for a fall-inspired breakfast. Or bring back memories of your childhood and mix up a batch of fig bars. Figs at dinnertime? You bet! Chop and add them to a Moroccan-inspired salad with prosciutto and fresh basil or top your bruschetta with Figs and goat cheese for a twist. Surf the web and you’ll find countless ways to incorporate Figs into your diet!
