Figs & mozzarella

Cream filled mozzarella ball (burrata) topped with figs, berries & walnuts

We love mozzarella on our salad or on top of a heaping hot pasta dish, but for breakfast it is light & something fresh.

adding berries and walnuts just adds to this nutritious, easy to make breakfast. We all know about the benefits of berries eating walnuts help with lowering blood pressure, inflammation, helps with weight loss, and supports good brain function.

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.
