Yupik Lerida figs are dried, bulbous fruits without the addition of oil, fat, or sugar! Nutty and sweet in flavor, figs are also chewy and seedy in texture. Dried figs are ideal for snacking, and for either baking or cooking applications.
We like to turn up the volume up on classic, rich dishes that linger in the oven or on the stove top for hours. Add chopped dried figs to braised lamb, baked hams, pork chops, and even stuffing! Dried figs become moist when braised, stewed, or added to liquids, and add a decadent depth to long-cooking recipes.
Classically, figs can be added to grain dishes, cheese platters, granola, and other baked goods for a chewy, textured bite.
