Figs for snack and sweet dessert

Figs as topping for ice cream

Fig, fruit of the ficus tree one of the world’s oldest trees,which is part of the mulberry family is sweet, delicious and good source of vitamins.

Rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper and are a good source of antioxidants and vitamins A, E and K.

Dried or fresh figs have the same benefits, because of fig’s delicate nature it is often dried.

We love to serve dried or fresh figs with cheese and fruits, and with some added sugar turn them into a delicious jam. Use it for toppings, or for a afternoon snack with butter or cream cheese.

Figs, leaves are also perfect to line the snack trays
