Figs are the fruit of the ficus tree, which is part of the mulberry family (Moraceae). Figs have a unique, sweet taste, soft and chewy texture and are littered with slightly crunchy, edible seeds. Fresh figs are delicate and perishable, so are often dried to preserve. This produces a sweet and nutritious dried fruit that can be enjoyed all year round. There are multiple different varieties of fig, all of which vary widely in color and texture. Figs are high in natural sugars, minerals and soluble fiber. Figs are rich in minerals, including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper and are a good source of antioxidant vitamins A, E and K that contribute to health and wellness.
Dried figs will keep for much longer. When purchasing dried figs, you want to ensure that they are free from molds and are soft. Dried figs can be kept in a cool, dark place or in the fridge. Figs contain high levels of oxalates thus eating excessive amounts of figs is likely to have a laxative effect and so they should be enjoyed in moderation.
Dried fig can also be soaked and consumed, like almonds. Soak dried figs for 30 minutes before use so they’ll plump up nicely and puree in a jiffy! The soaking water can also be used in recipes since it’s rich in nutrients and delightful dark purple color, indicating the high antioxidant content.
