I absolutely love California figs. Fresh figs are currently in season and we have dried figs for you all year round.

Truth is, I’m in my glories right now because I thoroughly enjoy both the fresh and the dried on any given day. Each variety characterizes a different taste experience but they’re both equally delicious. Dried figs are more concentrated with an intensely suburb flavor and a chewy-rich texture that I really enjoy.

Both dried and fresh California figs are loaded with nutritional benefits.

The following information is from the California Fig Advisory Board:

  • Fresh and dried figs contain disease-fighting antioxidants
  • Fresh and dried figs contain good amounts of calcium
  • Fresh and dried figs contain good amounts of potassium
  • Fresh and dried figs contain good amounts of iron
  • And lots of dietary fiber!
  • Multi-purpose uses are endless. Here are a few examples:
    • Easy to stuff with your favorite cheese. For example:
      • Try gorgonzola with walnuts
      • Any type of goat cheese with walnuts/pecans
    • Figs wrapped with prosciutto and served with blue cheese
    • Fig banana smoothie
    • Fig nut sandwich
    • Goat cheese fig pizza
    • Cambazola focaccia fig pizza
  • In any cereal or yogurt
  • And of course a great out of hand snack!
