Description

Organic Lerida Dried Figs are a delicious dense fruit for trail mix.

Organic dried  figs are a delicious gooey snack full of flavour.  If you remember eating fig rolls as a child these healthy snacks will transport you back there in a moment without any need for added sugar. Nutrient dense and full of flavour, figs are a great addition to sweet and savoury recipes.

These dried figs are from the common fig tree which is part of the mulberry family.  Figs are native to Asia where they have been grown and cultivated for centuries but they will happily grow in Europe in a sunny spot.

You can try your hand at making your own version of fig rolls by trying tray bakes or giving fig and olive tapenade a try as a gourmet starter.  Dried Figs are a source of calcium and magnesium which are both needed for the maintenance of healthy bones.  This makes them a great option for vegan diets.

Family Tip:

  1. We love dried figs chopped up in porridge and their consistency adds a chewy texture.
  2. These figs go really well chopped in salad with walnuts and rocket.
