Organic Sun-Dried Figs by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown in Turkey. Packed in the UK.
Native to the Mediterranean region, and one of the first plants cultivated by humans, figs have long been prized for their uniquely full flavour and sensuous, fleshy texture. Drying them is a natural, chemical-free way to preserve these qualities, as fresh figs are quick to perish once they’re harvested.
PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Grown, harvested, and dried in the Mediterranean sun in Turkey, Hatton Hill Organic’s sun-dried figs combine sweetness and chewiness with a subtle but pleasing crunch, thanks to their seeds. You’ll find it difficult to resist simply eating them straight out of the bag, as most people snack on dried figs, but they are a wonderful addition to a surprising variety of dishes.
USES: Dried figs boast a full, mature-palate sweetness that makes them a star ingredient in sweet and savoury dishes alike. From jams and relishes to cookies, cakes and muffins, to smoothies and sangrias, our figs will lend a touch of elegance and sophistication to your culinary repertoire. But the surprising versatility of dried figs doesn’t end there – add them to salads, make them a mainstay ingredient in pork, duck, and lamb dishes, and plan desserts around them to treat your tastebuds and extend your epicurean horizons as you wow friends and family with their appealingly exotic flavour notes.
SOLAR POWER: In the process of sun-drying, the antioxidant properties and mineral content of figs get a boost, making them even more nutritious than the fresh fruit. They are a solid source of vitamins A, B, E and K, they’re rich in dietary fibre, and they contain beneficial minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper.
