FIGS, BLACK MISSION - Kosher/Gluten Free

BLFIG-5

Description:

Black Mission Figs are a purple-black fig containing extremely small, edible seeds. Figs have firm flesh and soft inside and were thought to be sacred by the ancients. They were also considered to be early symbols of peace and prosperity. Black Mission Figs are sweeter and smaller than Calimyrna Figs. The best time for Figs is November to January when the new crop has been harvested. While fresh the figs keep their shiny purple-black color but for the rest of the year, the Figs are considered old crop. As they age, Figs will crystallize with sugar, making them appear white and almost moldy on the outside but having no effect on the figs themselves. During the off-season, expect Figs to crystallize within 2-4 weeks after purchase. All Figs are a good source of iron, calcium, and phosphorus.

Ingredient Statement:

Black Mission Figs, Potassium Sorbate.

 

 

 

 

 

Make a Fig compote and drizzle over flapjacks or ice cream. Toss into a salad or try in a balsamic chutney, add to cakes, tartlets, jams, sauces, cereals, and stuffing. Dip in chocolate or eat them just plain!

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

There is no preparation needed for dried fruit. If used in baking, you may want to rehydrate. To rehydrate dried fruit, pour boiling water over the fruit and let sit covered for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain well before using it.
