ORGANIC MISSION FIGS
% Valeur quotidienne*
Yupik Organic Mission Figs are dried, dark, bulbous fruits without the addition of oil, fat, or sugar! Nutty and sweet in flavor, sticky figs are also chewy and seedy in texture. Dried figs have a thick, wrinkled outer skin, and a luscious, dense interior packed with jam-y goodness and tiny, crunchy seeds (similar in texture to raspberries). Dried figs are ideal for snacking, and for either baking or cooking applications. Buy Organic Mission Figs by 500g, kilo, or case to keep your cupboard well-stocked with this pantry essential. Conveniently pack portion controlled baggie’s to store your car, backpack, or desk with this healthy snack!
HEALTH BENEFITS: A guilt-free snack to feel good about!
Certified organic, vegan, wheat-free, and gluten-free, dried figs are non-fat, low in calories, and an excellent source of fiber! Figs also contain natural sugars to boost energy. Add dried figs to your pre-workout granola mixes or trail mixes for that surge of energy before and after physical and/or athletic activities.
CULINARY TWIST: Tradition and innovation!
If you have Middle Eastern or Mediterranean roots, you remember your grandparents pulling the blossom end off a dried fig and inserting an almond or walnut. You can recreate this tradition, or now begin it! You can also do so much more with dried figs. 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, sauces, and even roasts! Dried figs become moist when braised, stewed, or added to liquids, and add a decadent depth to long-cooking recipes!
