CULINARY TWIST: From sweet to savory!
If you have Middle Eastern or Mediterranean roots, you remember your parents or grandparents pulling the blossom end off a dried fig and inserting an almond
. You can recreate this tradition, or now begin it! The earthy flavors of nuts pair extraordinarily well with the nutty, honey, and jam-like flavors of 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, and even stuffing’s! Dried figs become moist when braised, stewed, or added to liquids, and add 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!
